Pre-Opening Reception for Inner Light: A Collaboration with ManneqART

Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A dozen wearable sculptures from ManneqART, an international arts and educational non-profit, will be on exhibit from September 9 through November 18, 2017.  Join us for the  pre-opening reception and media event on September 7 at 6:30 pm.

In partnership with Sandy Spring Museum, ManneqART challenged competitors to include an “inner light” component in their sculptures.  “Inner Light” is a reference to Sandy Spring’s Quaker founders, who believe that everyone has an inner light and that the potential for good exists in everyone.  This idea will be represented in the sculptures, which show the duality of good and bad, positive and negative.

The life-sized sculptures on exhibit include the winner of the Inner Light competition, Glacius Angelies, by Lynne Spector and Maddy Halbach of Glenwood, MD.
