E Pluribus Unum
A Members Exhibition
in Partnership with the Fitchburg Art Museum
November 17 through December 13, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, November 17, 2017
6:00 to 8:00 PM

E Pluribus Unum, our sixth “call and response” with the Fitchburg Art Museum, takes the historic motto of our nation—out of many, one—as a starting point. Over one hundred artworks explore ideas about accumulated mark-making, compositions, multiples, mechanical reproduction, seriality, and, of course, nationhood. The loan of ten works from FAM’s permanent collection that catalyzed this year’s partnership remains on view, so that viewers may see which, if any, of the FAM works directly influenced those of our artists.

Curatorial staff from the museum will select ten works from E Pluribus Unum for exhibition there during the summer of 2018, and the chosen works will be announced at the opening.

The opening reception and gallery hours are free to the public, with refreshments from Armsby Abbey and Crust, and music from the WPI Jazz Combo.

The exhibit runs through December 16, although ArtsWorcester closes the week of Thanksgiving. Gallery hours are held on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, 12:00 to 4:00 PM, and by appointment. Free parking for the opening reception is available in the lots belonging to the Freemasons, at Ionic and Beacon Street. Thank you to our friends and colleagues at the Fitchburg Art Museum for our partnership.
