“Out of Place” reveals and repositions what it means to belong. Twenty-nine artists offer an expansive interpretation of the theme—spanning several mediums, scales, and forms, the work featured in “Out of Place”could easily be construed as disparate or fragmented. Yet, presented together, these artists contend with structure, familiarity, and acceptance while pushing the boundaries of what it means to belong.

What does it mean to be out of place? To answer such a question, one must first define what “place” refers to. Place presents itself in the minutiae of daily happenings—a place at the dining table or the placement of a book upon a shelf. More broadly, it is a factor that shapes our identity as we orient ourselves within social, political, familial, or cultural constructs. Indeed, the impact of “place” varies depending on the context.

On the First Friday of every month, the artists, galleries, shops and restaurants of the SoWa Art and Design District open their doors to the public for an evening of art, culture and inspiration. Meet the artists in their element and view their latest works, shop the galleries and boutiques, then afterwards dine at one of our world class restaurants.

Come and enjoy the free fun. Plenty of parking is available.
