The Week Ahead @ the Henry

Making plans for the week? Check out what’s happening here at the Henry.

Industrial Effects: Photographs from the Henry Art Gallery Collection is open now through September 1.

Over the years, photographers have traced the rise and fall of industry’s popularity, from sweeping views of skyscrapers to critical looks at industry’s effect on workers and the environment. Through a selection of photographs from the Henry’s permanent collection, Industrial Effects traces evolving attitudes toward industry from the 19th century until now. This exhibition is organized by Sylvia Wolf, Director.

Mindfulness Meditation, 12:30 – 1:00. Mindful Awareness is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental, and emotional experiences. Thursday’s session will be held in the East Gallery which is currently showing Paul Laffoley: Premonitions of the Bauharoque. This event is free. Please check in at the front desk.

Public Forum: Free Market, 1:00 – 3:00. Everything must go! Toward the close of Small Change, once all of the handmade currency has been dispersed, artist Rebecca Chernow will be hosting a “liquidation sale” during which time everything that has accumulated in the space through means of trade and barter will be made available to the public.

Visitors are encouraged to empty the gallery space of its contents in this final week, exchanging real U.S. dollars (on a strictly donation basis, at their discretion) for objects of their choosing. All donations support the Henry’s mission of advancing the art, artists, and ideas of our time.
