“American Purgatory”

Renowned painter Marc Trujillo brings his exhibit, “American Purgatory,“ to The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. A critique of modern capitalism, Trujillo‘s paintings present the viewer with familiar urban and suburban places such as gas stations, fast food chains, and big-box grocery stores. Through his examination of widespread commerce, Trujillo tries to encourage viewers to question their relationship with these spaces and ideologies. Challenge your own perceptions of consumerism at the opening reception on Friday, August 25, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, 161 Calhoun St. Monday-Saturday, 11am-4pm.
