In the Antiquarium of Change you will find a paradox of past, present and future. Familiar objects that are seemingly fossilized and incrusted with mineral growths and inclusions of crystals express the inevitability of change over time. You are invited to witness in person this MFA thesis exhibition with all new artwork by Zach Valent.
