Frank Olt’s colorful and dynamic installation of small-scale work occupies Nassau County Museum of Art’s Contemporary Gallery in Frank Olt: New Works, a solo exhibition that is on view through Sunday, November 8, 2015.
On Saturday, September 20, from 3 to 4 p.m., as part of the Artist in the Galleries series, Olt will greet museum visitors in the Contemporary Gallery and answer questions about his work and career. This event is free with museum admission; reservations are not needed.
