December 15-January 7
The Annex at the Bush Barn Art Center
Kathryn Cellerini Moore is this year’s TEDxSalem Artist-in-Residence (AIR). The Salem Art Association’s Community Arts Education program is collaborating with TEDxSalem to provide a space for the AIR to complete a stage installation, which will set the tone for the January 7 event taking place at the Salem Convention Center. The TEDxSalem AIR program aims to connect with the community through public art. As part of the program, Cellerini Moore will present a TEDx talk on stage in addition to creating the installation. It is the hope that through this program, ideas, innovation and community will be connected through art.
Come see the artist’s in-progress work in the Annex at the Bush Barn Art Center. Exhibitions at the Annex are free and open to the public. Please note that the Bush Barn Art Center and the Annex will be closed from December 25-January 2.
