Join guest curator, Joe Zimmer, for a Gallery Walk and birthday celebration for Deborah on May 7th. Joe will provide guided tours at noon and 2:15 PM and cake will be served at 1:45.
Life features a broad and carefully-curated collection of original works from six decades of Deborah Newton’s life-long artistic venture from downtown Rockford pioneer to supportive community leader. Thousands of her cherished works reside in homes, companies, and public institutions across the country. These joyful examples are assembled from private holdings to inspire a path forward for emerging local artists of all ages. Open through July 9th.
Thanks to a grant from Rockford Area Arts Council, admission is free to the museum. Galleries are open 10 AM to 6 PM Thursday through Sunday.
Curated by Joseph Zimmer • Exhibition sponsored by James Beall and Mac’s Moving & Storage
