Salinger, its consequences, what happened to those letters 25 years later, and what we can learn from the story in the age of the Me Too movement.

DreamLife

Women & Their Work

DreamLife will celebrate the many ways that artists, past and present, female and male, have found dreams to be a source of inspiration and a space for exploring the imagination. They’ve welcomed dreams as provocateurs, as geneses for new work. By actualizing the subconscious, artists have shown us what dreaming looks like: from portrayals of sleepers and dreamers in bed, to the dreamscapes in our minds, to the configuration of visual symbols that create narratives. The subconscious is fantastically colorful, acutely personal, and a universal experience: though not everyone is an artist, everyone makes art in their dreams. About the evening Our spring bash is more of an immersive art party extraordinaire. The evening will feature performance art, a dreamlike photo booth, tarot readings, music, video projections and more. DreamLife VIP party-goers will sip on specialty cocktails & catered delights during a pre-party reception from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and have the first chance to buy art from a small collection curated especially for this event. Hair stylist Tisa Watson and makeup artist Lady B will provide attendees with party-ready hair and makeup styling.The festivities are open to all ticket holders from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Suggested attire for the evening is psychedelic bedclothes. Think silk robes, slip dresses, satin pajamas, and kitten heel slippers…. the loungewear and sleep attire of midnight.
