This juried show brings national and regional, established and emerging artists
together with the inspiration “What is White?”  A b.a.l.m. collaboration with
Rex Hausmann, allowed us to produce an interactive performance piece for
the opting that illustrates the concept of digging beneath the surface of a piece
of art to reveal the pinata-like nature of art as it is experienced by people of
diverse agesand backgrounds in different ways.  We hope this piece frees the
gallery viewer to experience art in a curious and engaging way.
Please see the video below of this interactive collaboration.

Please contact us with any questions or for a full list of artists,

All work must be purchased through Signs of Life Gallery.
