“Lost and Looking” exhibit opens at Lubeznik Center


“Between Two Camps,” 1948, by Gertrude Abercrombie

Press release from Lubeznik Center for the Arts

Considering how place and loss affect us all, artists included in the Lubeznik Center for the Arts’ “Lost and Looking” use memory as a device to confront the reality of our pasts, and imagination to address 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. The contributing artists to this exhibit 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.

To view the exhibit visit the center, 101 W. Second St., Michigan City, now through June 5. Small group tours can be set up; email Executive Director Janet Bloch at jbloch@lubeznikcenter.org to arrange.
