The home setting will also offer the opportunity for conversation about the original Hawkins Ferry House art collection, currently located in museums throughout the country.

Artist list includes: Nina Chanel Abney, Derrick Adams, Brian Bellot, Trudy Benson Katherine Bernhardt, Sanford Biggers, Greg Bogin, Kendell Carter, Jack Craig, Greg Fadell, Beverly Fishman, James Benjamin Franklin, Sayre Gomez, Tyree Guyton, KAWS, Mike Kelley, Paul Kremer, Andrew Kuo, Sadie Laska, Austin Lee, Tony Matelli, Charles McGee, Josh Reames, Scott Reeder, Jason Revok, Carlos Rolon, Holton Rower, Adrianne Rubenstein, Chris Schanck, Willie Wayne Smith, Agathe Snow, Sheida Soleimani, Devin Troy Strother and Spencer Sweeney.
