Street Art

Exhibit Dates: July 22–August 7
Gallery Hours: Thursday–Saturday, 1:00–5:00pm

Art isn’t confined to museums or studios or classrooms, it lives and breathes on the streets around us. Graffiti, murals, chalk art, street performers, sculptures; we might pass by them on our commutes or walking around town.  In this exhibit, we are celebrating the art around us that endures the elements and exists in unexpected places.
