Exhibit – Behind Closed Doors by Julie Sirek at Anderson Center: April 14-June 23

The Anderson Center invites you to the opening reception of the exhibition of Behind Closed Doors, featuriing the work of Julie Sirek, on Friday, April 14, at 7PM, in the mail gallery.

Julie Sirek is best identified as an artist with a social conscience. The issue of domestic violence is a constant theme in her work. She believes art is a vehicle capable of creating social awareness and change. Art breaks through barriers, connects across cultural differences, and engages our shared values. She works primarily with paper in conjunction with the process of joomchi. Through her adaptation of this ancient Korean technique, she transforms paper into a unique textile-like material.

This event is free and open to the public.

The artist will lead an informal discussion about her work to raise awareness of the devastating impact of domestic violence.

The exhibtion runs through Friday, June 23.

This event is made possible in part through generous grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Minnesota Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
