Opening reception for 28th Annual Spectrum Contemporary Art Show, juried by Hilary Lewis, chief curator and creative director of the Glass House.

Inspired by Philip Johnson and David Whitney’s legacy as art collectors and champions of contemporary art, Lewis selected work from 550 entries that represents “What’s Now / What’s New” — new interpretations, original techniques, diverse subject matter.

Johnson and Whitney shared a respect for history, but also believed art, architecture and ideas should not be trapped by the past. Johnson believed strongly in the adage “the one constant is change,” and the 2018 Spectrum exhibit will showcase artwork and artists that best represent the future and reflect the world we live in today.
