Because I Said So… an exhibition encompassing the range of experiences that occur when growing up with parents or parental figures.
Everyone has a story about their parents; good, bad, funny, or sad. This show includes work by local artists in a range of mediums that explore memories, reflections, and anecdotes about their parents. Personal stories reveal universal truths.
