|Recurring Event (See all)

Brett Cook is an artist and educator who uses his creative practice to transform outer and inner worlds of being. For over two decades, Cook has produced installations, exhibitions, curricula, and events widely across the United States, and internationally. As a former student of Philip Morsberger at the University of California at Berkeley, Brett was asked to create a commissioned work for the 1998 exhibit, Redefining the Pejorative:  is it good or is it bad? The work, a spray-painted diptych of James Brown and William S. Morris III, was displayed on Broad Street. Cook-Dizney’s billboard-style portrait painting often touches on political and social themes and the artist himself describes it as permissional and nonpermissional.

This is the first time in twenty years that the complete diptych has been on display.

The work will be on display in the 3rd Floor North Gallery until January 11, 2019. Please join us for a closing reception on Friday, January 11 from 6-8 PM. 

Gallery Hours:
Tuesday – Friday | 10 AM – 5 PM
Saturday – by appointment only (24 hours advanced notice required)
