Opening Reception & Artist Talk
Pete Driessen | Zumbro Bend: Three Desiring Bodies
Saturday, November 18, 1:00 - 4:00 PM, Artist Talk at 2:00 PM
Join us in celebration of Pete Driessen's new solo exhibition Zumbro Bend: Three Desiring Bodies at Rochester Art Center. The exhibition includes three separate site-specific works, each a different abstracted fork in the river ecosystem. Titled after the South Fork Zumbro River that winds around the Rochester Art Center, the artist illuminates meandering sociopolitical variants on the river as creative life force, terrain erosion and deposition, land extraction and water channeling.

There will be an artist talk at 2:00 PM in the galleries. This event is free and all are welcome.
