Opening Reception May 4, 6-8 pm.
The 12 x 12 exhibition features artwork inspired by the LP Record Jacket. The idea of the 12-inch LP has been present in popular culture since the first one was pressed in 1903. The images on the cover grew from signage and marketing to works of art that represented the music and the culture in which both are being created. Its iconic format still maintains the visual representation for the auditory message enclosed within. Juror Beth Giacummo is an artist, curator ,and educator.
