Congratulations on the show – and the baby, too

Timing, as they say, is everything. And we doubt you’ll hear any argument from Elizabeth Dunbar. The Arthouse curator spent last Friday overseeing the final installation of “Rapture in Rupture,” an exhibit of work by Lauren Kelley, Shiri Mordechay, Mindy Shapero, and Nicolau Vergueiro that she curated, then celebrating the show’s opening with a crowd at the Jones Center. And then on Saturday, she gave birth to her first child, Samuel Alexander Dunbar Tucker. (He was not due for another couple of weeks, but maybe he just couldn’t wait any longer to see his mom’s latest show.) Mother and son are doing well. She dubs him her “best curatorial effort so far.” “Rapture in Rupture” runs through Jan. 11, 2009, at Arthouse’s Jones Center for Contemporary Art, 700 Congress.
