Opening on July 25, “Circle of Truth 49 Paintings Ending with Ed Ruscha” is an exhibition inspired by the childhood game of conveying messages through a chain of individuals. This visual domino chain involves 49 artists over nine years, each interpreting and responding to the previous artist’s work, resulting in a journey of artistic exploration.
The Biggs Museum will close out the year with an exhibition opening in October by renowned artist Rozeal.
