Jeffry Cudlin: By Request

Mixed Media

Editorial Review

Jeffry Cudlin is a man of many hats: artist, art critic, curator and director of exhibitions at the Arlington Arts Center. Add another one: muse. For the exhibition "Jeffry Cudlin: By Request," Cudlin polled area collectors for their views on the ideal work of art. He then commissioned seven artists to create those works, with one stipulation: They all had to feature an image of him.

Opening receptions: Friday from 6 to 8 p.m.
