 Tony May, Book Mobile Shadows (SJICA)

If you know the way to San Jose, The San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (SJICA) will be presenting the works of San Jose artist, Tony May.

By presenting carefully curated pieces from public and private collections, May’s own archive, new works and recreations of past temporal or site-specific projects that have been lost over time, the exhibition brings long-overdue recognition to May as a Bay Area art treasure in his own right.  An exhibition opening reception will be held at the ICA on Friday, November 12th from 6pm – 8pm. 
Friday, November 12, 2010 through Feb 2011
