Eat. Sleep. Art. Repeat
November 12, 2022 – March 4, 2023
Food and sleep fuel our basic needs as human beings. Over the last few years the pandemic forced us to reconsider and adapt how, when, and where those needs are met. Longing for a creative way to once again connect with our community, find commonalities, spark imaginations, conversations, and appetites, the solution became obvious, an exhibition featuring our permanent and private art collections in LaGrange.
Artists have long depicted food and sleeping as an essential aspect of human life. From Jacob Lawrence’s still life, Pablo Picasso’s children sleeping, Alexia Markarian’s Woman and Steak to the ceramic vessels created to serve and store food, our local collections capture the range and inspiration of these two subjects.
All artworks are from LaGrange Art Museum’s Permanent Collection, LaGrange College’s Lamar Dodd Art Center Permanent Collection, Wesley and Missy Cochran Collection, and artist Annie Greene.
