BOOM! is a collaborative partnership between the Fitton Center for Creative Arts and Artspace Hamilton/Strauss Gallery. 35 Artspace and “Strauss Crew” artists are featured with over 160 pieces of artwork, spanning throughout the Fitton Center and The Strauss Gallery. You’ll see electric art, aerosol art and a mossy piece that seems alive.
The August 20 opening event will celebrate this duel-location exhibition with hands-on chalk art guided by Beautiful Colors of Hamilton, the vibrations of Wadaiko Gouken Japanese drum troupe and the energy of “Strauss crew” artists at both locations. BOOM! will run from August 20-October 30th at the Fitton Center, whereas the art for BOOM! displayed at the Strauss Gallery will be on display through the end of August.
