Music for the People

Sat, Jun 26 / 2–4 pm

Be a part of the art! Violin soloist Christina Bouey will perform on the gallery floor of Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times. Visitors are invited to enjoy the music while activating the artists’ site-specific installation, Parlor for the People. The conceptual tabernacle filled with handmade stools and textiles designed or sourced by the artists is a place for communities to relax, observe, converse, and be together.

Bouey will play 15-minute sets between 2 and 4 pm. The performances are free with admission and will take place in accordance with the Museum’s safe social distances practices.
