SUNDAY, JULY 21 / NOON – 4 PM

Salon 4700

Behind-the-Scenes with Artist Tom Burr

5/29/2019 / 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Standing over seven feet tall and spanning more than 80 feet long, artist Tom Burr’s fantastic plywood sculpture Deep Purple defiantly travels across the floor of the Art Center’s I. M. Pei building, hits the glass windows, and continues out over the reflecting pool. Disregarding the boundaries of Pei’s brutalist architecture, the sculpture carves its own queer space.

View Deep Purple three days before the opening of Queer Abstraction and participate in an exclusive conversation with Tom Burr and Assistant Curator Jared Ledesma about the installation’s importance to the exhibition. After the discussion, Salon 4700 members are invited to enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and drinks in the Art Center’s courtyard.

FREE for Salon 4700 members / Meet in the Art Center lobby
