‘Urban Objects’ Art Exhibit at Westfield Valencia Town Center @ Westfield Valencia Town Center Art Space, 2nd level
Jul 13 – Oct 2 all-day

“URBAN OBJECTS” ART EXHIBIT BY AARON KRAMER ON DISPLAY AT THE WESTFIELD VALENCIA TOWN CENTER ART SPACE

On Display through October 2

The City invites residents to explore the newest exhibit at the Westfield Valencia Town Center Art Space, “Urban Objects,” by artist Aaron Kramer. The exhibition features unconventional art created with recycled materials and repurposed everyday objects, such as a chair made of cork and hand-carved boats repurposed from wooden salad bowls. The Town Center Art Space is located on level two at the Westfield Valencia Town Center, near The Canyon-Santa Clarita. Residents can view the “Urban Objects” exhibit now through October 2, 2018.

With over 20 years of working with sustainable art, Kramer continues his practice of drawing inspiration from his own memories and transforming ordinary objects into extraordinary pieces that inspire. “I seek a deeper understanding of the transcendent nature of ordinary objects,” says Kramer.

For more information regarding the exhibit, please contact Jeff Barber at jbarber@santa-clarita.com. For more information regarding all City art happenings, please visit SantaClaritaArts.com.
