First Friday at the Publick House

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us at the Publick House to celebrate new works by our founder and director, Todd Simmons: 
“Did You Try Turning It Off?”
A decade and then some of house projects, creative pursuits, and collecting things left my workshop somewhere between a hoarder’s delight and a rummage pile. In a manic attempt to find the walls again, I spent six weeks going through the piles to find the pieces I’ve created and hung for this show. Most things went into the recycling bin, by the curb, or to the landfill, but what remains are pieces that reflect decay, celebrate the discarded, and find joy in the surreal. It’s a grand feeling to let stuff pile up for decades; it’s even more thrilling to decide to let it all go.
