Tues.-Fri. 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sun. 12 – 4 p.m.

Prehistoric Divas features the work of artist Kelly Witte. The exhibit is inspired by the artist’s fondness of dinosaurs, street art and low brow pop surrealism. Fueled by a newfound love of sewing and fiber arts Prehistoric Divas will showcase an all new series of hand sewn and hand beaded art dolls created by Kelly Witte. Subjects that are depicted in the brightly colored and glittery works include fashion forward dinosaurs that are reminiscent of 1980s and 1990s pop culture. Hand sewn brooches that coordinate with the art dolls will also be on display.
