July 21 – August 19, 2018
Slow Mover, presented by artists Matthew and Lisa Bethancourt of Mouse & the Billionaire is a series of traditional and interactive artworks that invites viewers to reflect on the slow movement of time. Living with artwork over time can be powerful and is very different than seeing something for a few minutes in a public context. For this reason, selected works will be gifted to interested individuals over the course of the exhibition. Visit mouseandthebillionaire.com for more information.
