Press release from Stephen Vincent Kobasa

Curated by Martha Lewis, From the Archive of Unrealized Dreams: Unmade Projects will be on view at the Institute Library from Dec. 7—28. There is an opening reception on Sat., Dec. 7, from noon til 2 p.m.

Practicing artists spend a good deal of time coming up with unrealized ideas, filling in applications for grants and awards and public works installations. Many of these end up being preserved in their filing systems, to remain forever in storage. This is an exhibition of the best of these failed proposals, with each artist represented by a succinct project description, a model or sketch and the accompanying rejection letter.
