Morgan Greenhouse continues with her work to promote local artists and make art accessible to the public. In April, Greenhouse was part of Team Work, which created a project for Cultural Development Corporation’s pop-up gala in the empty retail space of the Moderno building– just south of U Street on 12th St. NW.
Greenhouse’s latest effort utilized the space owned by investment firm LaKrtiz Adler to produce, “SPLEEN, a show featuring three D.C. area artists. Inspired by Charles Baudelaire’s poem by the same name, “SPLEEN” is the product of a month-long installation process combining the talents of ART CARGO (Jacqueline Levine), sculptor Oreen Cohen and ceramist Sarah Allison.
In “SPLEEN,” each artist visually represented her unique interpretation of the poem while taking into consideration how the elements would interact.
