Opening Reception for Riverwalk Hallway Exhibit: "TRANSFORMED"

Please see full event listing for date.

A collaboration with Westport's nonprofit Beechwood Arts & Innovation, this exhibit presents selected work by visual artists from Beechwood's Spring 2016 Arts Immersion "Transformed" Salon. The artists were asked to transform an existing canvas--theirs or someone else's--in any way and document the process with photos. The photos were then made into Aurasma-app "videos," enabling viewers to see the transformation. Opening reception: Thursday, September 15 from 6-7 pm in the McManus Room.
