Mix a little art and culture into your upcoming weekend plans with a visit to the National Gallery of Art in Washington for a special exhibition featuring the prominant work of American artist Barbara Kruger. The National Gallery of Art will be reopening the East Building Tower Gallery after three years of innovative renovations to the modern art exhibits, and will be celebrating with a special launch event.
The exhibit will run from September 30th to January 22nd, and admission is free to the public. The exhibition is centered on Kruger’s famous piece titled, “Untitled (Know nothing, Believe anything, Forget everything)", and features other works along Kruger’s distinctive theme of faces and figures in profile with emotionally stirring superimposed text. Kruger’s work provides the viewer with the unique sense that she is speaking directly to them through her art — an experience you don’t want to miss.
