Maloof It Off the Roof!

Come experience “Maloof It Off the Roof” at the April Art Walk from 6-7 pm. As part of the current exhibition This is not a chair., artists and furniture makers will provide a wide range of “chairs” to be dropped from the roof with musical accompaniment. The event will take place at Ahmad Shariff Art Gallery, 107 Harvard Ave. across the street from the Museum. The performance event is based on tales that as a young furniture maker Sam Maloof would drop his chairs from the roof of his garage to test the strength of their joints. “Maloof It Off the Roof” combines this unorthodox yet practical act with a dose of joyous spectacle and performative destruction to create connections between generations of artists/makers and disciplines.
