State of the Art August 13-20
Galleries and museums are resting up after two weekends of foot traffic, but the Ogden and NOMA will still be keeping their doors open late towards the end of the week for Ogden After Hours and NOMA’s Where Y’Art. Many ongoing exhibitions span from St. Claude all the way down Magazine, including Post-Fordlandia at Good Children Gallery, Living With Pop all the way uptown on Octavia, and Between The Pages at Heriard-Cimino on Julia.
NOMA's Friday Where Y'art celebrates the museum’s last week showing What Is A Photograph? The event will feature its usual art making activity, music from Rex Gregory, and a gallery talk from curator Russell Lord. The edible portion of the evening will include Art You Can Eat with Beverage Specialist Thomas Register, teaching Muddling and Mixing: The Art of the Cocktail (reservations requested). At 7:30pm, they’ll screen Michael Frierson and Michael Murphy’s Clarence John Laughlin: An Artist with a Camera.
Ogden After Hours gives guests an opportunity to walk through the museum from 6-8pm with food, wine, and of course, new music every week. This week the O features guitarist Jimmy Robinson and percussionist Michael Skinkus, a specialty cocktail of the month, and Miss Linda’s Soul Food Catering. Bring your kids for “O Fun: Kid’s Art Activity Table. There’s also a raffle to win an “art-ful object,” for only $5 a ticket. Admission is $10, free for Ogden members.
