Host & VIP: 6:00pm | Event: 7:00pm - 10:00pm Collect art, support arts education, and be inspired by artists at Root Division's largest annual fundraising event!
For the month of August, the Frank-Ratchye Project Space is excited to present new works by Makiko Harris that explore material value, aesthetic definition, irreverence, and the rejection of technological sterility. By merging broad and fast gestural paint strokes with methodically-placed fabrics that obscure and expand the visual borders of the canvas, Makiko Harris: Silent Conviction asks us to critique the ways we accept and participate in consumerist, cultural, and societal value systems.
