Opening Reception September 20, 6- 9pm

Bradford Kessler’s exhibition, Become Gift, Sky Become Shadow, draws its source from Victor Flemming’s The Wizard of Oz. In the original 1939 edition, a dark figure swings in the backdrop of the enchanted forest for a brief shot. The official explanation by MGM Studios was that the anomaly was an exotic bird on loan from the Los Angeles Zoo, but in fact another story emerged, the shadow was the hanging body of a munchkin.
