Sound & Vision II-For The Record exhibition closing party
The art exhibition For the Record is a feminist celebration of music and visual art that will take place at the historic Institute Library in New Haven from March 11 through May 6th in honor of Women’s History Month. The exhibit features dozens of artists who submitted through open call to make imaginary record album covers. The title- For the Record- comes from the idea of setting the “record” straight and being allowed to speak- or sing- for ourselves, in our own true voices. This diverse and inclusive exploration of the roles of women in music will also feature memorabilia from notable musicians, real album covers designed by local artists, and some treasures unearthed from WPKN’s extensive vinyl archive. The exhibition was curated by Martha Willette Lewis as a collaboration between The Institute Library, WPKN Community Radio and Café 9. The exhibit will feature opening and closing receptions and a dance party on Wednesday May 3 at 7pm to wind the whole thing down in style. The Gallery Upstairs at The Institute Library is located on the third floor of 847 Chapel Street in downtown New Haven. Don’t miss this fun, festive and imaginative exploration of feminism and creativity!
