Lonnie Holly, Evenings at the Edge

March 8

Join us as we take art to the edge! Inspired by Outliers and American Vanguard Art, this evening we’ll explore how art made on the margins redefines the mainstream. Highlights include performances by Lonnie Holly, art-making with local artists, and pop-up talks that probe assumptions about creativity, artistic practice, and the role of the artist in contemporary culture.
