Description

Join us for the exhibit opening of “Dear Grampaw” at the Argus Museum, Thursday, May 23rd, 6-8:30 pm. 

The encaustic photo collages, created by Matthew Provost, explores his “grandfather’s rites of passage and first-hand experience of the Vietnam War”. The artwork, which incorporates his grandfather’s photos, letters and journals found after his passing, tells the story of war on a personal level. Through his work, Provoast began to know, and understand, his grandfather in a different light - as a young man thrown into traumatic situations - and how those experiences changed is life. Provoast, a graduate of
Kendall College of Art & Design, Kendall College of Art & Design, is devoted to the medium of “storying” and archiving memory, as well as the artistic reflection of history, through close family ties.

The exhibit is available for viewing 9-5, M-F, through August 9th. The Argus Museum is located on the second floor of the Argus I Building, 525 West William Street in Ann Arbor.
