Art Reception: Paul Neumann

Saturday, August 6, 2016 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Meet Oak Park artist Paul Neumann at a reception for his solo exhibit, MADE MANIFEST. The exhibit will be on display in the Main Library Art Gallery through August 30.

Neumann examines the illusions of history through collage and spatial investigation. He is interested in abstracted historical narratives. His first solo exhibition is about the interplay of things, people, and places. Where do protagonists go when they feel lost? How do objects gain meaning? MADE MANIFEST is an exhibition of visual questions.
