Event Type: exhibitions
“Locale Unlimited” engages visitors to interact first-hand with the changing nature of maps. Lights, peeking through paper cut outs, are triggered as viewers walk through the space. This continual change between light and dark in the gallery make for an ever-shifting definition of space. The installation is a collaboration between artists Jeremy Stern and Adam Franchino. Opens Sat Jan 19, 5:30-7:30pm. On view Jan 19–Feb 22. Gallery hours: 11am-7pm, Tue-Sat.
