    Written and directed by the artists, THE WORLD OF GILBERT & GEORGE is both their singular self-portrait and a subversive personal tour through Thatcher-era Britain, where church spires and city streets, youths and drunks, dancing and tea drinking all take on affecting new meanings when viewed from their unique perspective.

  • Open Studio / My True Story

    Join Teaching Artist Aurora Rincon to explore and recreate images, stories, or text from newspapers to show your own perspective by using transferring printing technique. Inspired by Gilbert & George’s Kitchener, on display at The Howard and Judie Ganek Collection.

    About the artist: Aurora Rincon is a native of Venezuela. Rincon received a B.F.A. from The Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C. in 1995. She is currently working as a Teaching Artist at the Norton Museum of Art.

    6-9pm
  • Live Music / Abstract Citizen

    Abstract Citizen is the newest group from Guitarist/Composer Aaron Lebos. All of the music was written during the pandemic and is under the wide umbrella of Modern Jazz. It is Aaron's first project using vocals. Aaron also plays with some of the biggest South Florida names such as Nicole Henry, Spam All-Stars, Nu Deco Ensemble and more and brings his diverse and eclectic style to Abstract Citizen.

    Their music is filled with simple yet unique melodies, complex yet accessible time signatures, individual and group improvisation. Most importantly this new music is filled with freshness and sincerity. Joining Aaron is a remarkable band featuring Justine Garcia on vocals, Marty Quinn on bass and Brahm Masla on drums.
