OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, MAY 20, 2010 from 6-8 PM at Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT. Inspired by the artist’s endurance training using the recreational paths and racecourses of New York City, Limited Run enacts an indoor track constructed within the confines of the gallery walls. Visitors are encouraged to run or walk around the looped spectacle. A fire bell rings at each completed 20-meter lap. During the first two weeks of June, Laura will organize racecourse activities with community groups as well as use the track for her own running regimen. Events will be broadcast on through live streaming video.
