Steel Bodies Opening Celebration
Thursday, June 9th
5 – 8 PM

Join us to celebrate New York-based artist Maren Hassinger’s return to Socrates after her first exhibition in 1987. Steel Bodies is a new, site-responsive work examining the complications of human interrelation and affinity, identity, and collectiveness, through abstraction in the outdoors. The public is invited to walk among the steel vessels, up to eleven feet high, experiencing new perspectives through their linear frames.
