Does It Match the Couch? A Juried Exploration of Color
By Monmouth Museum


 
International Deadline: April 22, 2018 – To match or not to match, that is the question!

There are varying answers, viewpoints and even more questions surrounding that age old query that has the ability to make many an artist cringe. Should you buy a piece of art because it will compliment your décor or because you like it? Is it taboo to commission an artist to create an artwork to compliment the color scheme of a room? How do interior designers select art for the spaces they design? How does color theory play a role in the creation of art? How does the color palette of a space affect your mood?

In this whimsical summertime exhibition, Does It Match the Couch? A Juried Exploration of Color, we will delve into all those questions and more. The walls of the Main Gallery will be lined with couches from local furniture establishments and the artwork will be installed strategically behind them, or if sculptural, placed nearby. Plus, we will be offering Lifelong Learning Series educational programs to fuel the inner artist and interior designer in us all.

So let’s explore the notion, should artwork be selected for its intrinsic value or just to match the color of one’s couch?

Exhibition: June 1, 2018 – September 2, 2018.
