“Tag…You’re It: Outside Art Moves In,” a travelling exhibit of 21 panels, each 4×7 feet in size and painted in 2017 by street artists from the Detroit/Dearborn area, will be on exhibit in Muskegon Community College’s Overbrook Galley from March 18 through April 19. The title references the idea that graffiti artists are often referred to as “taggers.”
On Thursday, April 11, a public reception will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Overbrook Gallery. Refreshments will be served. At 4 p.m. in Stevenson Center Room 1100, Steven Glazer, an instructor of art at Henry Ford College since 2004, will discuss the process of putting the exhibition together. The events are free and open to the public.
Glazer, who was the catalyst behind the exhibit, is the Art Exhibitions and Competition coordinator for Liberal Arts Network of Development for Michigan Community Colleges (LAND) and also a Michigan Ceramic Art Association (MCAA) board member at-large.
The Overbrook Art Gallery is free and open to the public on Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with special weekend and evening hours during performances in the adjacent Overbrook Theater. For more information, call (231) 777-0324.
