“Art + Identity: an international view” at browngrotta arts

Recently, browngrotta arts (in Wilton, Connecticut) presented Art + Identity: an international view as part of their “Art in the Barn” series—an annual 10-day exhibition featuring over 50 international artists. Art + Identity was held in a barn built in 1895 and expanded and contemporized by architect David Ling. The exhibition was on display April 27–May 5, 2019. Below is a gallery of highlights from the exhibition.
