Lubeznik Center announces upcoming exhibits

 

Lubeznik Center for the Arts of Michigan City has announced two new upcoming exhibits:

Lost and Looking

Considering how place and loss affect us all, artists included in Lost and Looking use memory as a device to confront the reality of our pasts, and imagination to confront the reality of our futures.

While places from our personal and collective histories help define us, memory and imagination remain fluid and ever changing in the mind’s eye. These artists explore how true or fictionalized memories can be, how accurate or inaccurate recorded history truly is, and how all of these abstract qualities inform our futures.

Searching for and finding our place—both spiritually and physically—often directs an entire life’s meaning. This ever-shifting landscape—be it personal, collective, or historical, drives these artists in their quest for higher meaning.

Lost and Looking will be displayed Jan. 30 through June 5.

Small group tours can be set up.

In the Hyndman Gallery, artists included in Lost and Looking are: Gertrude Abercrombie, Theaster Gates, Amy Honchell, Kelly Kristin Jones, Bobbi Meier, Robyn O’Neil, Nina Rizzo, and Alison Ruttan.

Pipelines and Borderlines: The Art of Survival

Pipelines and Borderlines is a grassroots non-profit organization that utilizes the arts to educate people about the risks and hazards of unsustainable energy use.

Pipelines and Borderlines has produced three print portfolios, all curated by artist Beverly Keys of Oak Park, Ill. LCA will exhibit the newest portfolio of prints called The Art of Survival. The featured artists are from the U.S., Mexico, Canada and Central America and all use traditional relief printing techniques. These works juxtapose the global effects of environmental calamities with the environmental justice that can be attained through education. While the artists connect us to these issues in ways that statistics cannot, their works also portray inspiring success stories about restoring the planet.

On Saturday, Feb. 27, at 11 a.m., LCA will broadcast live via Facebook portfolio artist Corey Hagelberg, who will be giving a presentation and a printmaking demonstration. As part of Pipelines and Borderlines community engagement initiative, Corey will also honor sustainability champion and environmental justice organization Just Transition NWI, with an original print of his own. 

The exhibit can be viewed in the NIPSCO Art Education Studios from Jan. 30 – March 12.

The Lubeznik Center is located at 101 W. 2nd St., Michigan City. Admission is free. Call 219-874-4900 or visit www.lubeznikcenter.org.
