Project Description

Lecture and Guided Tour with Curator Heather Cammarata-Seale

The exhibition “RED” demonstrates how contemporary artists are employing shades of red—ranging from flaming scarlets, pale pinks, and deep burgundies— to underscore metaphorical meaning as well as create graphic intrigue.  No matter how each individual artist uses the color red, all create a distinct definition for the hue:  a symbol of passion, a marker of protection, or a connotation of beauty, inner life and mortality. While red might not be the most predominant color in every piece, it indeed carries the most visual and conceptual weight.

Join Dr. Cammarata-Seale for a guided tour and a lecture of the exhibition, a survey of contemporary art work that considers centuries worth of symbolic meanings and cultural associations embodied by the color red. Pre-registration is required.
