In the Lichtenstein Theater
October 8, 6 pm - 7 pm
Join artist Darlene Charneco in conversation with Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Project, as they discuss Charneco's 2021 Parrish Road Show exhibition Symbiosome Schoolhouse. The site-specific exhibition is on view through October 24 at Oysterponds Historical Society in Orient, in both the Old Point Schoolhouse and on the Historical Society grounds. Charneco presents new works on paper, sculpture, and video, as well as the artist's signature wall reliefs which she calls Touchmaps, created largely while in residency at the William Steeple Davis Trust in Orient.

ABOUT PARRISH ROAD SHOW
Now in its tenth year, Parrish Road Show is the Museum's off-site project designed to encourage engagement and interaction between artists and the communities outside the Museum's walls. Each year, selected artists work with the Parrish and partner venues to create new work and to provide unique opportunities for visitors to see and experience art in unexpected places, from public parks and highways to historical sites and community centers.
