The inBEtween exhibition is a touring group show, planned to promote unity in response to our divisive time. Artists in the group are responsible for taking the show in their location, therefore bringing it to a wider audience, and to include local artists and community. In this way the message can keep reframing itself in a new and relevant context.
This show has been presented in 2019 at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, Augusta, Georgia, and in 2020 at Studios Inc. Kansas City, Missouri, and Constellation Studios, Lincoln, Nebraska. Alternative shows and works were shown also in Germany and India. Exhibitions and venues are being planned through 2021 and 2022.
