These works came together to formulate an unprecedented view into the artists creative and collaborative process, resulting in the finished pieces-- their Labor of Love.
This exhibition presents itself as a visual commentary of works from the past, bringing them into view in a modern context. The work highlights the broad range of influences and creates a impactful view of two artists that are not limited by convention. Each piece speaks volumes, and it is up to the viewer to interpret the message.
The artists creative response allows visitors to engage with the museum in new ways and make connections between old and new interpretations of art resulting in an unprecedented dialogue between art and observer.
Labor of Love will be open to the public on Sunday, December 16, 2018 and will be on view in the Special Exhibition Gallery until July 7, 2019.
