Event details

Join us for an online Artist Talk featuring the artists of our Plays Well With Others exhibit. These behind-the-scenes looks offer unique insight into each artists’ inspiration, process and the context behind the work. Be part of the conversation, express your thoughts and ideas or simply sit back and enjoy the discussion.

Plays Well with Others is an exhibition curated by Jessica Todd featuring local and national artists who create work that engages with play and toys in interactive, mischievous, and subversive ways. The exhibition includes works of all media that entertain while disrupting the status quo; one could easily enjoy it as a collection of nostalgia and delight, but the artists have skillfully transformed the lighthearted theme of “play” into a critical dialogue of contemporary issues.

This event is online and hosted via Zoom. These talks are free for Alliance members or $5 non-members. An RSVP is required and a suggested donation supports the future of the arts in southwest Florida.


The Alliance for the Arts gallery and gift shop hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. or by appointment by contacting Ehren at exhibitions@artinlee.org

We will host free, virtual opening reception for this exhibit on September 11. Pre-registration is required at ArtInLee.org/PlaysWellOpening.
