A few months ago I received news from Chad Aligood, curator of State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now. He noted over 175,000 people experienced State of the Art during its initial run. And added that it received an Award of Excellence from the American Alliance of Museums. The exhibition will be traveling!
It seems only fitting that a show that started on the road and in the studios of artists nationwide will have a second life as it takes its own road trip across the country. In an effort to honor the exhibition’s original impulse towards access and inclusion, and to account for the enormous size of the original show, State of the Art will be split into two different versions, both traveling simultaneously.
My works, Male Torso – Anterior View and Female Torso – Anterior View, will show at the Telfair Museums in Savannah, Georgia. This version of the exhibition will open February 18, 2016 and will run through September 4, 2016.
Another version of the exhibition will travel to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota. That exhibition will open on February 18, 2016 and will run through May 29, 2016.
…yes it’s exciting!
