I went to a great show at the Nathan Cummings Foundation
tonight, organized by the Provisions Library in Washington, D.C. The show, titled Close Encounters 2: Acts of Social Imagination runs through August 28th.
Provisions Library is a social change learning resource that amplifies compelling voices that challenge and redefine the mainstream. Its library and online services are a trusted source for alternative perspectives on a wide range of social change topics and its innovative exhibitions and public projects strongly engage the arts as a powerful means of exploring social issues.
Provisions features on-site programs such as exhibitions, screenings, workshops as well as fully accessible online study guides, virtual exhibitions. Provisions is grounded in the values of peace, justice, sustainability, social responsibility and respect for the diversity of life. Awesome!
I saw Brice Marden at the show and he asked me if I wanted to go walk the High Line! It was a perfect night for a stroll!
