    Women & Their Work: The Future Is Behind Us

    Rachel Wolfson Smith focuses our attention on the essential and grounding effect of beauty in nature, portraying constructed, intricate, and imagined landscapes, creating "an antidote to the imbalance many of us experience as we lurch from impulse to impulse in our tech-laden, consumer-driven, modern existence." Yes – an antidote to that, and a paean to the possibilities of graphite wielded by a brilliant hand and mind.
    Opening reception: Sat., Aug. 13, 7-9pm

    Blue Lapis Light: Belonging

    Ah, here's a kinetic spectacle that you'll never forget. This is Blue Lapis Light's site-specific dance that features aerialists dancing on the parking garage windows above True Food Kitchen and on the Seaholm Power Plant stacks, along with ground-based dancers performing on the Plaza. Digital media accompanies the performance, evoking the beauty of our planet and how our actions affect the environment.
