Join us for the kickoff of Untitled: Creative Fusions with the theme of "Entanglements."
Explore the space between the manmade and the natural, where humans and nature are irrevocably intertwined. Creatives Eileen Roscina Richardson and Joshua Ware join forces to investigate the wild and the constructed, inspired by Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature and The Light Show.
Untitled: Creative Fusions are included in general museum admission; a special exhibition ticket is required for the Monet exhibition.
