"Restraining Order: The Art of Self-Control" Artist Talks

The Artist Talk event for the "Restraining Order: The Art of Self-Control" February Third Friday celebration will be an intimate evening in which each artist in the exhibition will have an opportunity to discuss their work with YOU! Bring on the questions!

The timeline for the evening (all times EST):
7:30 PM Arrival / light refreshments / introduction
7:45 PM Guided tour with artists and curator
9:00 PM Informal Q&A session
9:30 PM For goodness sake, let everyone go home or continue with their Friday night celebration!

As a magnanimous gesture of support for artistic ingenuity and creative perspectives, twenty-five artists were invited to create innovative and engaging artwork, ranging from painting to photography to short films to installation, after a stimulating discussion with Dan Ariely on his research into the techniques for developing self-control. An exercise in self-control was built into the creative process as artists also had to submit images of their weekly progress, which are displayed alongside their finished artwork.
