Something BIG is happening at The Frost 4/17/09


April 17 marks the opening of 4 thought-provoking exhibits

Opening Reception | Friday, April 17 | 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Because I Say So is an exhibition that will provoke that answer to the question “Is that Art?” The Frost Art Museum will present sculpture and installations for which the artists have used materials ranging from the most ordinary (twigs, pins, scraps of fabric, etc.) to objects that make reference to the tradition of sculpture, but subvert that tradition in remarkable ways.

Major collectors Debra and Dennis Scholl present the often unseen sculpture that is central to their significant contemporary art collection. The Scholls have been in the forefront as collectors and supporters of emerging and established contemporary artists for many years. The exhibition is on view thru August 16th.
