Reception AnySquared Exhibit at Hairpin

AnySquared launches its schedule of residency public programs with a celebration of the “Because Art” Exhibit at the Hairpin Arts Center. Reception is open to the public.

AnySquared’s “Because Art” exhibit presents work that reveals the discourse between the art and the artist. Through installation, painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture and mixed media, the exhibit explores approaches and techniques of art practice and how it is shaped through the process of self-identification.
