Armory Center for the Arts
The Armory Center for the Arts is a community arts center that offers innovative approaches to creating, exploring, and presenting the visual arts to students of all ages. In addition to providing an outlet for contemporary art exhibitions and performances, the Armory offers studio art classes and a variety of educational outreach programs to schools and in the community.
The funding will go towards “Traversing,” which will feature the work of artists Ellen Lesperance and Helen Mirra. The show includes distinct presentations of the two artists’ individual practices as well as collaborative, participatory components. It will be organized around the format of a conversation, exploring topics as exchanges relating to artistic production. Exhibition dates are June 2016 through September 2016.
