Lots of great paintings at Soirée. Soirée, like all KANEKO programs, offers a terrific environment, a new exhibition, and the opportunity to discover a fresh and intriguing perspective. For this year’s Soirée, KANEKO is proud to present Richard Hunt: MONUMENTAL, an original exhibition guest curated by Dr. Marin R. Sullivan for KANEKO.
In July 2022, as part of The Riverfront Revitalization Project and the Gene Leahy Mall, one of Hunt’s large-scale sculptures was put in downtown Omaha as part of The Riverfront Revitalization Project. The exhibition also features works by the Chicago artists Faheem Majeed, Sarah Rowe, and Charles Kay Jr.
