BITTERSWEET OBSERVATIONS
JUN 9 – OCT 1, 2017 
ROCKFORD ART MUSEUM

FRI, JUN 9
PUBLIC OPENING
FREE ADMISSION 

This whimsical feature exhibition explores the beauty and wonder, and sometimes darker side, of modern fairy tales. Along with paintings, prints, video, and installations, Casey Riordan Millard’s Shark Girl series will catapult viewers into the life of a bizarre half-shark, half-girl’s imaginary world. Bittersweet Observations also features work by local artists Jeremy Klonicki, Jenny Mathews, and Sarah Reed-McNamara.


Bittersweet Observations is organized by Rockford Art Museum, curated by RAM Curator Carrie Johnson. This exhibition and related educational programming are partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency and by the Armer Ahlstrand Charitable Foundation. RAM education programs are supported in part by Women’s Art Board.
