Mead Reimagined, Take 2: Opening Reception

Join us to celebrate the opening of Mead Reimagined, Take 2.

We will debut Kota Ezawa's "Gardner Museum Revisted," which recreates 13 paintings stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990. The paintings were worth over $500 million and the mystery remains unsolved.

We are also launching "Talking Heads," which Amherst College students helped to curate. Come to see our many heads and listen to fun tunes inspired by this show!

Finally, be sure to check out all of the new works on view in our main gallery and our new video room!

As always, there will be delicious refreshments and a bar for those over 21.

This event is free and open to the public.
