AAG member, Kim Walker is the Guest Curator for the Herberger Theater’s Exhibit, Unplug.
What do you do to “unplug”? Technology is everywhere and very relevant, but perhaps more essential is finding time to unplug . . . to look up . . . to just breathe. It’s impossible to list the myriad of ways we can unplug and refresh our body, mind, and spirit. Let’s take this opportunity to share this concept in literal and/or metaphoric expressions in art. | Prospectus |
