Event Details

Join us for the opening celebration of “Hurricane Season.” The exhibition showcases the idea of a home under threat, cycles of environmental and political violence, repair even when more is coming and inevitable. It is about a home worth rebuilding, even under these conditions.

Be among the first to view the newest exhibition. Bring family and friends to kick off the evening with complimentary lite summer bites and the evening’s signature cocktail by Tangerine Food Co. (Beer and wine available for purchase.) Enjoy the ambiance of the Bookey Family Courtyard with music provided by DJ Richie Daggers. Remarks from the John and Mary Pappajohn Director and exhibition Curator will take place at 6 pm.

This event is free; registration is not required. This event will be documented with photography.
