Stop by Wistariahurst Museum throughout February to experience Erika Slocumb’s newest exhibit, Abstract Revelry. This art exhibit is the first of its kind to be presented in our gallery, with each artwork being accompanied by pieces of music that inspired each piece. Borne from a discussion about the need for interactive exhibits that can engage multiple senses, while also making sure to program this exhibit in a way that people with disabilities can also enjoy the full experience. Erika’s artwork is intricate and multidimensional, making it a unique perspective on how art comes in many forms You will hear artists such as Rihanna and Public Enemy, with QR Codes available to link you to a playlist that you can listen to while viewing the exhibit.
