LAURIE ZUCKERMAN'S ALTAR EXHIBIT OPENS AT LOVELAND ART MUSEUM AUGUST 29, 2009
Laurie Zuckerman's solo exhibit at the Loveland Museum/Gallery opens Saturday, August 29, 2009 with an artist's reception from 6-9 pm. Please join me at the opening of my exhibit, MEMENTO MORI: Deconstructing the Nuclear Family, honoring my family during my Cold War era childhood. The show will be chocked full of home altars and huge altar installations, a Day of the Dead ofrenda, 14 memory jugs, and dozens of shrine photographs from Mexico and the Southwest. I have created nearly all of the work in this exhibit since 2001, and much of it has never been on view in Northern Colorado or anywhere else. It is my most extensive exhibit to date, as the Main Gallery of the Loveland Museum is a huge exhibition space at 3750 square feet.
I do hope to see you at my opening of "MEMENTO MORI: Deconstructing the Nuclear Family. If you miss the opening, then you'll still have until November 1, 2009 to catch my exhibit. I will be giving two lectures in conjunction with the show, so watch for posts announcing the Gallery Talk and the Day of the Dead Lecture. The museum newsletter, posters, and showcard are due out anyday.
