About the Body

40 West Arts Gallery

February 2 - 24, 2018

  • Opening reception: First Friday, February 2 from 5-8pm
40 West Arts, Lakewood's state certified arts district, invites the public to celebrate its newest exhibition titled About the Body. This exhibit explores the multiple aspects of the human body including cycle of life, birth and aging, wrinkles, scars, markings and other. The exhibit will also focus on things that can be ascribed to the physical self such as attitudes toward bodies and topics of self-esteem, body size, and body acceptance among others.

Asked about the event and its impact on local arts, 40 West Executive Director Liz Black said, "the body is a topic that is fundamental to both art and human existence. We're excited to kick off our 2018 exhibition schedule with this show because it's a recognizable and accessible topic for artists but it also has so many fresh and unique opportunities, especially with topics like body size, body acceptance and gender issues gaining a large and profound voice in recent years."
