Art Reflected: The Inspiration of 100 Years
We are in celebration mode at the Memorial Art Gallery, we’ve been planning for this Centennial celebration for quite some time! 2013 begins our anniversary year, and one course of action that we took last year was to invite over seventy artists with ties to the Rochester area (at some point in their career) to create their own interpretation of objects that are in the MAG’s collection. Their new works will be on view side by side with their sources of inspiration. Art Reflected: The Inspiration of 100 Years, is an exhibit – on view throughout the Gallery – and a sale featuring some of the region’s best known contemporary artists. All the new works will be available for purchase through the Gallery Store. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of MAG’s history and future legacy.
The exhibit opens to the public on February 10, 2013 at the MAG and there is an exclusive opportunity to see the works prior, at the Opening Party on February 9th.
Art Reflected: The Inspiration of 100 Years is presented by the Gallery Council to benefit the Memorial Art Gallery. The exhibit will remain on view through March 16, 2013.
