ABRAHAM CRUZVILLEGAS: HI, HOW ARE YOU, GONZO? EXHIBITION ACTIVATION WITH FRONT STEPS

Learn from Front Steps caseworkers, who will share stories about found objects at the intersection of homelessness and humanity in an activation of the exhibition Abraham Cruzvillegas: Hi, how are you, Gonzo?

In response to the recycled materials of Abraham Cruzvillegas’s art, Front Steps, who manage Austin’s downtown shelter for the homeless, will bring discarded and found materials from the sidewalks around the shelter to the museum. Through the lens of these objects, caseworkers will focus homelessness within our community. The cardboard that is raw material for an artist, litter to a sanitation worker, or packaging for a business is temporary housing for many of our neighbors.
