Join us for our closing reception of three exhibitions: Adaptation-The Haunted Life, Opening Remarks and Craft as a Social Practice.
Adaptation-The Haunted Life presents artwork from the students of professor Kevin Curry’s 3rd Year MFA Seminar influenced by Jack Kerouac’s ‘The Haunted Life’ a lost a novella-length manuscript.
Opening Remarks features works from our permanent collection hand-picked by the Museum’s new Director and Director of Galleries, Preston McLane and Meredith Lynn. ”Our selections from the Museum’s permanent collection reflect who we are – what we like to look at, study, and think about.”
Craft as a Social Practice will be on our main floor and features new works by eight nationally-acclaimed artists where interactions and relationships built through community and audience involvement are the medium.
We will have light refreshments and a broom balancing game featuring artwork made by Forrest Sincoff Gard. Finding Balance is an interactive art game in which participants attempt to balance a porcelain broomstick in the palm of their hand. In addition, Cheyenne Chapman Rudolph will perform and serve up some sass with her Sassy Sippers. Cheyenne’s work investigates how we adopt cultural identity through objects and behaviors in her KitschInventions presentation and of interactive ceramic objects.
More information regarding this project and the purpose can be found on the MoFA website.
