Piercing the Inner Wall: The Art of Dusti Bongé
“The inner wall is, of course, up to you. It is a highly individual thing that surrounds the real person, not the superficial covering. I have always had the feeling that thoughts, ideas, and emotions can penetrate just like an arrow – they go straight through to that inner wall.” – Dusti Bongé
This timely exhibition follows the publication Dusti Bongé, Art and Life: Biloxi, New Orleans & New York, the first major book devoted to the art and life of the artist. With this publication, J. Richard Gruber, Ph.D., Director Emeritus of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, examines Bongé’s art and career from a regional and national perspective, situating her in the larger context of 20th century American Art.
Piercing the Inner Wall: The Art of Dusti Bongé is curated by Bradley Sumrall, Curator of the Collection, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and organized by Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
