Opening Reception for Exhibition: Please Touch the Artwork
From the venue:
Opening Night Reception: January 18th, 6pm -9pm
Many of you may have seen the â€œPlease do not touch the artâ€œ signs scattered throughout the gallery, or perhaps had the uncomfortable experience in a museum when an alarm goes off or security guard chastises you for getting too close to the art. Although we often want to close that distance and interact with artworks more intimately, the rules prohibit us from indulging that temptation. However, in this exhibit, we’re letting you break all the rules and not only allowing, but even encouraging you to touch the art! We are pushing the boundaries of the normally passive experience looking at art, and giving visitors the opportunity to touch, play, and experience the art in a different way.
