Art for Lunch: Susan Collis: Without you the world goes on

2/22/2019 / 11:30am

*Reservations required
Space will fill quickly and seating is limited

The member benefit Art for Lunch is designed with busy Art Center members in mind. In recognition of their support, members at the Ambassador ($140) level and above are invited to discuss Susan Collis: Without you the world goes on with Senior Curator Alison Ferris. Afterwards, enjoy lunch with Alison and fellow members at the Art Center restaurant—it’s on us.

When entering into an exhibition featuring Susan Collis’ artwork, one might think they arrived on the wrong day—there appears to be no art and it looks like the installation crew has stepped out for a break. Visitors with an eye for detail, however, will pause, discovering the installation supplies are actually the works of art, and realizing these seemingly ordinary objects have been made from or altered with precious materials.
