Ruby Fridays

Drop by the Ruby on Friday at noon for a casual art talk and free lunch to learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.

Is painting relevant? What lies beyond painting? In this talk, artist Renzo Ortega will present his thoughts and conclusions after his experience as a visiting artist at the Rubenstein Arts Center and following his solo exhibition at the Power Plant Gallery, during which he created the site-specific installation "What I Left and What I Brought."
