Contemplating Candy II: an installation by Jackie Hoysted

Guests to the reception for Contemplating Candy II took away some of the artist-made lollipops to reveal, one letter at a time, the literal subtext of the exhibition. Between now and the show’s end on December 10, come grab a lollipop and see the hidden meaning unfold!

A lecture with the artist will be held Wednesday, Nov 18 at 4:30pm in the Black Box.
