Conversation - "Palm Oil, Rum, Honey, Yellow Flowers" (via Zoom and Facebook Live): Dominican-American visual artist/musician Kenny Rivero discusses his first solo museum exhibition. Curated by Sarah Freeman, this exhibition reveals his lifelong fascination with the meaning and histories of everyday objects and his passion for collecting discarded material. According to Rivero, the works on view at BMAC explore death, violence, fear, faith, spirituality, war, and magic. The setting is an abstracted landscape informed by the people, architecture, culture, and aesthetics of Washington Heights in New York and the Dominican Republic. 7 p.m. Exhibit is on view at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center through 6/13.
