Infinite Mirror: Images of American Identity
September 19, 2013 - October 26, 2013
Opening Reception Thursday, September 19th, 5-6:30PM at the Juniata College Museum of Art
"Infinite Mirror" presents work by 39 culturally-diverse artists from across the United States. Such internationally renowned artists as Luis Jimenez, Tomie Arai, Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett Mora and others use portraiture and figuration as symbols for emotional and social ideas. The artwork is personal, reflective, autobiographical and of a high technical quality, creating an exhibition that is both visually beautiful as well as socially relevant. The exhibition includes the work of first generation Americans and emerging new immigrant artists that examines issues and themes of race, gender, religion, history, politics and family.
