Spectrum ArtWorks Exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Art

Special Announcement:

Spectrum ArtWorks introduces a new group exhibition that explores Mia's collection!

Spectrum ArtWorks has had a long history of using the Minneapolis Institute of Art as an important resource for participants to gain access the larger arts community. So when the program was recently recruited this summer to participate in a project called In Conversation, we were elated in excitement. Artists from the group were invited to select a piece of artwork from the museum's collection to explore and have a conversation with, all to produce new artwork for a special Community Commons exhibition. With thoughtfulness and enthusiasm for the opportunity, seventeen artists participated to add a new interpretation to each work they interacted with. The result is a set of work which ranges in 2D and 3D form that touches on many topics such as human connection, memories, and what it can mean to live with a mental illness. The In Conversation project brought participating artists closer to the museum, and literally right onto their walls!

Come to the Opening Reception on Thursday, November 6 from 6-7pm to meet the exhibiting artists and view the exceptional pieces that came out of this project!

Spectrum ArtWorks thanks Blick Art Materials for sponsoring the project, and RESOURCE for their support. With much appreciation, the program gives a warm thank you to the Minneapolis Institute of Art; for the ability and opportunity to be participate in this project and for the chance to exhibit in the museum.

Stay tuned for more updates!
