Painted sculptural works by award-winning New York artist Christopher Hart Chambers will be on view in a solo exhibition in the Museum’s Contemporary Gallery. These sculptures, incorporating urethane-based automotive paints, are rooted in what Chambers calls post-war “consumerist wants and dreams,” inspired by sports cars, hot rods, speed boats and even interstellar spacecraft.
