SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER (MUSEUM EXHIBIT)
THROUGH SEPTEMBER 25, 2016
Suddenly Last Summer brings together the work of local artists Donna Haynes, Michelle Weinberg and Leah Brown who have been asked to listen to the song Suddenly Last Summer by The Motels and create site specific installations inspired by the song in the museum.
The song itself evokes a deeper longing or melancholy for the loss of the things associated with summer and perhaps the realization that we can never go back and/or do not want to go back but cannot help but to recall.
