Art of Cute Members’ Opening Reception

Brick Store Museum


Museum Members and Friends invited!

Come join us for the opening of the most unusual art exhibition you are likely to see this year. The Art Of Cute, presented by the Illustration Institute, is an exhibition that takes a serious look at a powerful aesthetic that is often not taken seriously.

Our culture has a love/hate relationship with “Cute”.

Nevertheless, it is hard to deny that, whether found in a Jeff Brewer sculpture or in the face of a newborn baby most of us have been affected by the feeling of “Awwww!”

The Art of Cute is organized into three sections: Normative Cute, Applied Cute and Meta Cute. It will explore why we are drawn to that which is cute and how its impact is felt in life, design and art. Our artists include:
Susan Baker
Dick Bruna
Jeff Brewer
Calef Brown
Michael Connor
Patrick Corrigan
Liz Goulet Dubois
Larry Gianettino

Jen Bennett Gubicza
