OPENING RECEPTION: JANUARY 16, 2009, 6-11PM W/ Local musicians, DJs and filmmakers

Sworn In is an exhibition themed for and coinciding with the 2009 U.S. Presidential Inauguration. This historically significant election will be represented by the work of visual and sound artists from across the country. Modeled after the art collection of the White House, the salon style installation will mimic the collected works. Mancuso will renovate the arts venue using a variety of materials to resemble a parlor in the White House and flank the walls with the work of ten visual artists from around the country.

Sworn In will run for one month and include a closing reception February 14, 2009 from 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM. All events are free and all ages are welcome. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 12:30 PM – 6:00 PM.
