    "Swing Low," a collection of unique hanging landscapes, opens in the Perlman Teaching Museum

    Arts staff at Carleton College are busy installing a new exhibit in the Perlman Teaching Museum that literally ‘hangs’ in the Braucher Gallery. “Swing Low,” opening Friday, April 3 and on display through May 3, features sculptural works from four talented artists that hang from the space’s ceiling grid, creating a unique and varied visual landscape.

    “Swing Low” features the work of three Minnesota artists—Elizabeth Simonson, Alison Hiltner, and HOTTEA (aka Eric Rieger)—along with Massachusetts artist Rebecca Hutchinson. All four artists will speak about their work at the exhibit’s opening event, Friday, April 3 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Weitz Center for Creativity Room 236, followed by a reception in the Weitz Commons from 8 to 9:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
