Doors open at 6PM
Over 50 artists from an open call will display paintings and sculpture inside the newly transformed Bank building. Some of the featured work includes life size ceramic sculpture, large scale art made from US currency, bronze, fiber, and as always a few surprises.
The bank vault will be open for you to explore. Artist Betsy Streeter is making some changes from our initial opening and there is always something new as visitors leave notes and objects, and move things around.
How does art play a role in the economic prosperity and vibrancy of a city? As artists we come together in JPG@The Bank to show not only that art is good for the health of the businesses around a gallery, it brings with it, hope. It reminds us of our connection to each other and the greater unknown. New Currencies is a diverse collection of media, subject and style. A celebration of the exchange of creativity between artists and their community. Also within the exhibit are artworks made from money. These pieces bring into focus the relationship of art and commerce.
