Join us in person at Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel for a celebration of art and music with one of our featured artists, Rafael Francisco Salas!

Grab a drink from The Bar at Saint Kate and enjoy live country music in the lobby, a complement to the visual experience of Salas' paintings of rural Wisconsin!

To celebrate the run of his exhibition In Flowered Fields, currently, on view in the MOWA | DTN gallery, Salas will offer tours around the display and will be available throughout the evening to discuss his work with guests.

Tours in the gallery have a 15-person capacity to allow for social distancing.

Run of events:

5:00 pm: Kickoff and toast to the artist

5:30 pm: Exhibition walkthrough with Rafael Francisco Salas

6:00 - 10:00 pm: Live country music in the lobby at Saint Kate

7:00 - 10:00 pm: Pop-up exhibition tours with Rafael Francisco Salas

"Rafael Francisco Salas’s darkly poetic paintings of the American landscape are populated by anonymous musicians singing the praises and lamenting the struggles of rural life,” says MOWA Associate Curator of Contemporary Art J Tyler Friedman. "The exhibition is sure to initiate discussions about the Midwest—its overlooked beauty, contemporary conflicts, and the sins that remain inscribed on its soil."

Rafael Francisco Salas is an artist and Professor of Art at Ripon College.
