Opening Reception | David George Andersen: Word Play
Start Date: 4/15/2017Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 4/15/2017End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art will hold an opening reception on April 15 between 2 and 4 p.m. in the Maribeth Collins Lobby to celebrate the art of David George Andersen (1960-2017), a Salem artist who served as Exhibition Designer and Chief Preparator at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art from 2007-2016.

Andersen’s works garnered praise from other artists and many galleries. Andersen addressed the many hypocrisies of modern American life through his politically charged, irreverent, and whimsical mixed media assemblages. He used photography and found objects to create an artistic commentary on politics, religion, and issues of modern life. Andersen’s works were sometimes humorous and frequently provided piercing and thought-provoking perspectives.
