Public Open House: The Places We LiveOct 30 | 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
How do we describe and share our views of The Places We Live? Through the works in this exhibition we move from intimate space to vast space, from micro to macro considering the many ways that artists relay their interpretations of the natural world, our place in it, and its place in us.
This exhibition highlights a diverse selection of work from the AGGV’s permanent collection and is configured in three sections: “Look Closely” to experience works that feature insects and bugs and the expansive ecosystems that exists all around us but are hidden or out of sight.
Enjoy free admission to the exhibition all day from 10am-5pm.
