NAGB Opens NE6: Kingdom Come Exhibition - Nov 15, 2012 - 3:12:09 PM

The NAGB is pleased to announce the public opening of NE6: Kingdom Come on Thursday, November 15th, 2012 at 7PM.

Curator’s Essay:

This year’s edition of National Exhibition, “Kingdom Come,” provides 50 visual thinkers with a practical platform on which to collide with their vision of our present confusion or with hopeful projections of new beginnings.
