TORRANCE ART MUSEUM PRESENTS 

IN CASE WE DON'T DIE 

TUESDAY, APRIL 2 - SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2013

 11 AM - 5 PM

TORRANCE ART MUSEUM 

These days potential catastrophes are everywhere you look. You can't go outside or turn on the TV without reports of the world coming to an 'End' - global climate collapsing or terrorists planning new attacks. The world is so full of danger, threats, stress, overload and insecurity.

This pressure coming from a hyper tense society of doom is having a massive impact on the art being produced by the artists who manage to keep up their practice and it is forcing others to remain passive or paralyzed while waiting for a change of current that may never come. Come to the Torrance Art Museum for this new exhibit, for more information, Read More...
