New Work by Shea Little opens August 24th
About Us is an exploration of hypothetical effects our culture has on the world. This exploration is primarily concerned with the layering of human activity and extruding abstract ideas about the artifacts we are adding to the strata for future generations to unearth. Our understanding of past civilizations is expanded and redefined by examining their excavated artifacts, we too will leave a story behind that tells others about us.
The exhibition kicks off with an opening reception on August 24th from 7 to 10pm and will be open on Saturdays from 12 to 5pm from August 26th through September 30th.
