Milton’s Bar, August 5 to 27 @ kind of a small array, Magdalena, New Mexico.
It’s 2050, the twenty-fifth anniversary of artist Milton Faver’s breakthrough. Tragically, Milton passed away last year at eighty-two years old. We are presenting his bar, a place where Milton made art, friends, and the occasional enemy. We believe this is how he would like to be remembered.
Last January, Hayden Pedigo, Hills Snyder, Bryan Wheeler, and Jeff Wheeler met up for The $#%& Show, a Lubbock tradition for close to a decade. Invited by curators Christina Rees and Hannah Dean, the four artists had twenty-four hours to come up with materials and respond to this year’s prompt, “The year 2050.”
Come join us in Magdalena for the second iteration. You can sit on a bar stool next to Milton, maybe sense his presence, maybe hear some stories, maybe tell some of your own.
We hope you enjoy Milton’s Bar.
