In the Project Gallery:
BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT
Opening Reception: Friday, February 21, 2014, 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through March 29, 2014.
Day’s recent work is inspired by an ongoing interest in progressive values and thinking about freedom. In general, he is thinking about obtaining, having, creating, giving, protecting, and valuing freedom. These portraits are of prominent American religious leaders, grouped together they create the tip of the iceberg in terms of diversity of belief in the United States. These figures in their divergent ideas prompt the question, “what do you believe in?”, and create an interesting lens to focus on the thinking and understanding of freedom.
Tony Day, native of Houston, received a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University, and an EdM in Art and Education from Harvard University. Day’s work has been included in exhibitions at Lawndale Art Center, Diverseworks, O’Kane Gallery, and Box13 Art Space. He teaches visual art and video production at John H. Reagan High School.
