Please join us for the opening of the common S E N S E, a museum-wide exhibition by internationally renowned artist Ann Hamilton.

Come for any or all of the day and join the artist for the unfolding of this multi-part project. Immerse yourself in a gallery filled with low-frequency vibrations created by instruments inspired by ancient bullroarers, and assemble your own book of texts and images on the topic of touch.

Throughout the galleries, reader/scribes will read out loud in an intimate address to the images and materials of animals on display. Members of the UW Chorale will join the serenade as they sing an incantation to the animals individually and in small groups at intermittent times during the day.

Light refreshments will be served.
