Artists conquer the concept of “dress” in new exhibit
Landscapes, turkeys, dinosaurs. What do these things have in common? Apparently they can all be dressed. At least according to the artists who are premiering their unique work at the Jewish Cultural Center this Friday.
When you think of dress, you probably envision dresses made of silk, cotton or polyester—unless you’re a foodie, in which case you probably think of turkey dressing. No matter what kind of dress you fancy, you won’t be disappointed.
Twenty artists were selected to showcase their art based on the question, “What can be dressed?” And if the thought of a dinosaur dressed up next to a turkey doesn’t intrigue you, we don’t know what will.
Ann Treadwell, the exhibit curator and Program Director for the Jewish Foundation asks the key question to exploring the meanings behind this exhibit: “Are the dressings formal, childlike, traditions, influenced by other cultures, or are they abstract?”
You can answer this for yourself if you go to the exhibit opening this Friday. It begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m at the center.
The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public with no appointment necessary. If you can’t make it to the reception, don’t worry—the exhibit runs through March 11th.
Thursday, 5:30 p.m.
