Day Jobs - major art exhibition
Mar 07, 2023 - Jul 23, 2023
See what happens when artists don't quit their day jobs! This insightful show explores how everyday employment can spark incredible creativity.
The exhibition features work produced in the United States after World War II by artists who have been employed in a host of part- and full-time roles: dishwasher, furniture maker, graphic designer, hairstylist, ICU nurse, lawyer, and nanny–and in several cases, as employees of large companies such as Ford Motors, H-E-B Grocery, and IKEA.
The exhibition includes 75+ works in a broad range of media by emerging and established artists such as Emma Amos, Genesis Belanger, Larry Bell, Mark Bradford, Lenka Clayton, Jeffrey Gibson, Jay Lynn Gomez, Tishan Hsu, VLM (Virginia Lee Montgomery), Ragen Moss, Howardena Pindell, Chuck Ramirez, Robert Ryman, Andy Warhol, and Fred Wilson, among many others.
