Creativity in Progress: What’s happening on the café walls?

You didn’t think we would leave the walls of Tryst at the Phillips café bare, did you? It’s been just over a week since the Phillips bid adieu to Sandra Cinto’s installation, but we are working on a plan to brighten the place up again. Check back in September to see what we’ve cooked up; until then, pardon our dust!

It is with a heavy heart that we watch the de-installation of Sandra Cinto’s Intersections work, One Day, After the Rain. The multi-panel canvas painting, chiefly created on site, was unveiled to our visitors with the arrival of another beloved presence at the museum, our Tryst café. The café will continue to provide a place for conversation, rest, and refreshment. Cinto’s work will move on.
