Summer Wheat’s Immersive Exhibit Expands World of Vermeer’s Milkmaid

February 23, 2016

Summer Wheat's exhibition is a homecoming. Born and raised in Oklahoma City, she’s returned from New York to create a site-specific installation for Oklahoma Contemporary. Weaving together color, form and media, Pry the Lid Off showcases the space beyond the frame of Johannes Vermeer's The Milkmaid, depicting the four rooms of the maid's personal chambers.

A media kit including a press release, a portrait of Summer and high-resolution images of works from the show and their caption information can be found at bit.ly/OCSummerDrop. (Feb. 23, 2016)
