Through works spanning the artist’s career, this exhibition surveys Stephanie Frostad’s creative concern with myths and metaphors brought to life as pictorial realism. The storytelling tradition is vital to her mission: to create a truly democratic art. “As a narrative painter,” she states, “my objective is to present the essential elements of a story […]” In striving toward this aim, she builds pictures that are sometimes joyful, sometimes mysterious, uncanny, even dark.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Frostad will present a gallery talk at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in the PAR/TV Center lobby.
During the academic year, MMAC’s gallery hours run from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and it is closed Sundays, Mondays and UM holidays. The museum is open to the public with a suggested $5 donation. Docent tours are available, although advance notice is recommended.
