Illumination + Snack is an art adventure featuring an honest cat embarking
on her life-long quest to find salvation in a world full of tricks and
treasures. Embracing the spirit of EMP¹s varied programming, Illumination +
Snack is a ³multi-dimensional journey² that will offer visitors a chance to
see art, be in art, and experience art. McGraw creates a fantastic and
whimsical world with her pieces that audience members are invited to
participate in during the exhibition.
Unfold a colorful and continuous matrix that can be viewed only during a
group participation to gently unravel it. Gather quiet thoughts or dance at
the base of Chouffe Mountain, a mythical place McGraw has created where
³crescendo is intrinsically understood and anyone can achieve their hopes
and dreamsS² or at least have a delicious snack.
