The play between our senses can be an extremely powerful tool of engagement. Visual art is often meant solely for our visual pleasure. This exhibition explores the boundaries of our senses, and challenges the audience to engage with art in a physical way. The fine art pieces are meant to be touched and/or manipulated, adding an entirely new experience for gallery guests. This collaborative show challenges societal perceptions of fine art through fully interactive sculpture and 2D work, inviting guests to touch, manipulate, and absorb all aspects of the artwork in a foreign and exciting way.

This event is free and open to the public. Donations welcome!
