Crashing the Party
presented by The Sculptors Guild and LIC-A

Crashing the Party invites a wide range of interpretations of and responses to the idea and ideals of gender equity, from breaking the “glass ceiling” to political, social, physical, and conceptual ideas. This exhibition will offer an opportunity for sculptors who are questioning and expanding their use of materials, forms, concepts and experiences.
The Sculptors Guild in partnership with LiC-A is interested in supporting a creative platform to expand and broaden opportunities for all sculptors. “What’s now?” and “What’s next?”
