TITLE (full): Al Farrow: The White House
VENUE: Crocker Art Museum (Sacramento, CA)
NEW DATES: July 26 — November 15, 2020

Using guns and ammunition, Al Farrow transforms the tools of destruction into creation in his sculptures of cathedrals, synagogues, mosques, mausoleums, and other architectural monuments. By doing so, he denigrates no one belief, being mindful and respectful of all. His 2018 sculpture The White House is replete with irony, marked by the contradiction between its title and the somber, rusted exterior that insinuates the corrosion of long-held ideals.
