November 2 - December 22

This collaborative exhibition combines AVA, AVA's 4Bridges Arts Festival, and the Hunter Museum of American Art. During the months following the recent 2018 festival, each 4Bridges Emerging Artist selected one piece from the Hunter Museum’s collection to inspire a new creation of their own. This showcase is the debut appearance of those finished works. Accompanying each work is an image of the inspiration piece, and the artist’s statement explaining the chosen muse and final product.

*Artist Tour at AVA: November 10th, 2PM

*Artist Tour at Hunter Museum: November 17th, 2PM

(Exhibition and tours are free and open to the public)
