Be the first to explore our new exhibition Fun & Games? Leo Jensen’s Pop Art before it opens to the public at this special exhibition preview event! All attendees must register in advance.

Pop artist Leo Jensen (1926–2019) turned a winking eye on America, producing irreverent art that is nevertheless serious in its cultural observations. Known best regionally for his bronze frog sculptures on the Thread City Crossing bridge in Willimantic, CT, Jensen infused his work with humor as well as thought-provoking reflections on modern American society.

Light food & beverage • Family-friendly balloon animals • Exhibition tours • Demonstrations of the artist’s moving sculptures • and more!
