Carnegie Museum of Art
The next installment of the artsy after-hours series serves as the official opening party for the first of two major 2017 Forum Gallery exhibitions at CMOA. Centrally located in the main lobby, Forum provides a space for showcasing the 21st-century, international contemporary art scene.
Attendees will be the first to see evocative and eye-catching paintings by the prolific 39-year-old painter, Michael Williams, who was born in Doylestown, PA and is based in NYC.
On view through August 27, Williams’ first U.S. solo museum exhibition showcases new large-scale paintings and a series of drawings.
Don’t miss the public conversation with Williams at 7 p.m., where gallery-goers will learn about the artist’s use of layered, embellished and appropriated images, bold colors, and non-traditional techniques such as airbrushing and inkjet printing.
The fun continues with hands-on drawing activities, museum tours, and a dance party with DJ SMI.
Visitors can see the fabulous Iris van Herpen exhibition one last time before it closes, and grab bites from the CMOA’s late-night café menu.
