Event Details

Join us for the opening celebration of “Transform Any Room.” The exhibition features subversive, politicized, and sometimes glamorized versions of the textiles and objects we bring into our homes that inevitably reveal much about who we are and how we live.

Be among the first to view the newest exhibition and soak in the ambience of unique textiles and spectacular artworks. Guests will enjoy music from DJ Richie Daggers. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be available by Tangerine at the Art Center, and as a nod to the beaded cherry pie found in artist Liza Lou’s “Kitchen,” we’ll be serving up delectable hand pies by Pie Bird Pies. Come early before they’re gone!

This event is free; registration is not required.
