Opening Night: Now & Then by Chris Cran

It is incredibly special to have Chris Cran as part of our first year of programming at the Miller Art Gallery. He is one of the most influential artists in the country and is internationally recognized for his work. This exhibition sets the tone for what you can expect from me as a Curator and the level of artist and work we are pursuing to share and celebrate with the community
