Sunday will be a celebration of the arts at Christopher Newport University when The Mary M. Torggler Fine Arts Center officially open its doors to the public.
The free event will start at 1 p.m. with remarks and a ribbon cutting outside the distinct glass cascading domes. The grand opening coincides with the university’s homecoming.
Visitors will be able to tour the Night Light exhibition in the Anne Noland Edwards gallery. The exhibit is curated by Superblue in collaboration with the Torggler.
Superblue is a collaborative artist enterprise dedicated to producing, presenting and engaging the public with experiential art – work that is typically site-specific, kinetic, interactive or immersive – offering opportunities for audiences to experience visual art in a novel, compelling way, according to Margot Mottaz, associate curator at Superblue.
The Torggler will be open until 5 p.m. after the ceremony. Regular hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Sunday noon-5 p.m. It is closed on campus holidays. For details visit https://thetorggler.org.
