When inanimate objects reflect cultural concerns, historical narratives, and playful humor, it becomes clear that artists project their impressions of history into figurative works to better understand contemporary society. The sculptures, puppets, and installations in Personify engage new audiences and ask for participation. Art-making activities will be available for gallery visitors and tour groups in an immersive installation by Jim Hammond, marionettes will be on view and engaged with for the opening of Pablo Cano’s work, and an installation about the life and inventions of Nikola Tesla by Jeanne Jaffe will hang delicately from the Immersive Gallery ceiling.
The Arts Aspire program promotes strong leadership as well as college and career readiness for students and young adults ages 14-21. Arts Aspire activities at all three levels take place in a professional environment in which participants interact with business and community leaders, cultural organizations, non-profits, K-12 schools, universities, as well as families and patrons who take part in Center programs.
