Event Details

Our newly renovated lobby in Kaplan Hall will be unveiled on March 13th! Members will be able to see the new bar, store and lounge areas in addition to the vibrant lobby installations done by three different artist/groups.

  • 7-8PM – Artist Presentation with Erwin Redl, Assume Vivid Astro Focus & Matt Kotlarczyk (CAC Insiders and above)
  • 7:30-9PM – Lobby Preview with a cash bar (All CAC Members)=

Members will be greeted by a bright and colorful new installation as soon as they come in the doors! Artist collaborative Assume Vivid Astro Focus has designed a highly saturated vinyl decal that will line the lobby walls and stairwell to the lower level. Both of the artists, Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide-Pierson, also created an outside cover that will wrap around the CAC building in a similar fashion to the JR piece from 2013.

Another piece by artist Erwin Redl will span the entire length of Zaha Hadid's Urban Carpet. From the first floor to the UnMuseum on the 6th floor, Redl has installed white lights that blink and sway like pendulums. The resulting display can be seen all over the center and is only amplified by the windows, glass ceilings and reflective surfaces scattered throughout the building.

The final piece created for Kaplan Hall was made by local artist Matt
. His addition to the lobby can be seen by looking up to the ceiling at his cloud chandeliers. These bright, curving sculptures have been placed along the ceiling at various locations.

The Lobby Preview is a Members Only event - renew your memberships or join the CAC now!
