Saturday, June 8, 6–9 PM
Please join our popular monthly mixer for arts and culture enthusiasts. Enjoy free admission to Radicalism in the Wilderness: Japanese Artists in the Global 1960s and live music. This is the last weekend to see the exhibition—don’t miss out!
This special edition of Escape East is curated by Japanese composer/artist, Shuta Hasunuma. Come experience his new endeavor of sound/art, where the audience is invited to join in and become part of his musical composition. Hasunuma has stated that “Music is born out of our everyday lives, originating in the individual, ultimately returning to the individual.” This is an opportunity to experience how each individual interrelates with the different elements in a public space, and how, as private elements, they eventually become part of the art itself.
Gallery hours extended from 11 AM–9 PM.
