“When you see Michael’s work, it’s very much his own. You can see his inspiration and where he pulls from, painters like Francis Bacon and Philip Guston, and all the way to pop artists like Keith Haring. You see all of these touchstones within his work, but he has a really great way of employing his inspiration to create his own voice,” FitzGibbons said.
Due to Covid-19, the museum is only open on Sundays and Mondays from noon to 4 p.m. Additionally, guests can visit on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m., but they must sign in at the visitor’s center prior to visiting at half-hour intervals.
“This is a great opportunity to see a local, mid-career artist, who is showing all over the country. I expect in the next couple of years, he is really going to be doing some great things in the international and national art world. This is an opportunity to celebrate somebody from our area, and see his work before it really takes off,” FitzGibbons said.
A closing reception for the exhibition will be held on Saturday, November 14th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The reception is open to the public, and Stillion is expected to be at the event.
