Frank Olt quoted for “American Dream” Exhibition.

Frank Olt was quoted recently in a news story by Will Shelling of the LI Herald describing his thoughts on being included in the Raynham Hall Museum’s “American Dream” Exhibition on now through September 15th 2024. (Click here to view news story online.) Frank Olt, a local artist featured in the exhibition, expressed his delight in participating in a show that seamlessly blends the old with the new. He said that, “one of the best parts of being an artist was getting the chance to try and express a topic as nebulous as the American Dream.” Also featured in the article were LIU alumni and student of Frank Olt, artist Dasha Bazanova and LIU professor and acclaimed artist Dan Christoffel.

American Dream runs from April 12, 2024 – September 15, 2024 at the Raynham Hall Museum.

The exhibition invites contemporary artists to explore the American Dream in all its many complexities. Displayed within the historic spaces of Raynham Hall, it offers a multifaceted, vibrant, even subversive examination of ideas that have long captured our national consciousness and shaped our identities. Simultaneously, American Dream invites you to experience and participate in new conversations about how the ideals represented in the founding documents and the painstakingly wrought framework of our government set the stage for us to imagine what happiness might look like, and how the balance between the American Dream and the experienced reality sometimes lives on a knife’s edge.

Participating artists: David Alexander, Natalie Baxter, Dasha Bazanova, Marco Bras, Miriam Carothers, Dan Christoffel, Lauren Cohen, Jeremy Dennis, Joan Digby, John Digby, Wendy Foster, Rafael Fuchs, Sarah Fuhrman, Joan Harrison, Franklin Hill Perrell, Haley Hughes, Katherine Jackson, Patrick Jackson, Jourdain Jongwon Lee, Lisa Levy, Liz-N-Val, Rosie Lopeman, Keisha Prioleau-Martin, Felix Morelo, Frank Olt, James Prez, Greg Reid, James Riordan, Kiichi Takeuchi, Stew Vreeland, Mandy Henson Wasserman.
