Get Lucky, curated by Justin Hoover and Hanna Regev, provides a multimedia and multidimensional look at a vast array of fine art practices investigating the implications of chance operation in the arts and across cultural beliefs, values and practices.

The opening reception includes a special performances by local artists.

Poet Andrew Sullivan will construct and read a community-generated, site-specific, chance-derived poem. He will glean words and phrases from questionnaires, filled out by viewers, designed to capture their responses to the exhibition.
