Coming up at the
 March 2013
We know you've heard the saying: March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. People are usuallly talking about weather. How boring is that?! We're talking about art. And we're coming into March like a lion, and going out like a BEAR! (Or whatever is even more fierce and assertive than a lion). Check out all we have to offer this month:
  • Get your fill of artmaking activities at ARTBAR, celebrating International Women's Day with an irreverent twist,
  • Three brand spankin' new exhibitions roaring right at you all month,
  • Stalk some special prey at an artist talk, and
  • Bring your pride to Second Sunday for free family artmaking activities with artist Tom Torluemke.
See you there! And if you enjoyed that extended metaphor and weird personification of lions (where you're the lion), we'll even give you a high five when we see you!

March 3-May 19
The two person exhibition nowhere better combines new artworks by Iain Muirhead and Alison Ruttan that challenge our perception of danger and violence in relation to place. Whether the artists are borrowing from documentary images of terrorist attacks, crimes, tragic accidents, or natural disasters in local or global locations, the artworks present a powerful reminder that safety is a false concept.  Click here for more info.

Most known for her film, video, and performance work, award-winning artist and Art
Center student Cauleen Smith introduces printmaking into her repertoire with the site-specific installation at Hyde Park Art Center. The show, titled 17 , will feature approximately 260 feet of hand screen-printed wallpaper. The exhibition title references many facets of arts and culture traditions from ancient history to the modern day, arising out of Smith’s meditations on the number’s spiritual significance as a marker of immortality, as well a number of noteworthy cultural and historical facts and figures featuring the number itself.

March 17-July 23
Building from her personal history, an obsession with rules and order, and a love of Speculative Fiction, Lee Blalock creates a new series of art work that documents and hypothesizes a process of the future superbody and its daily operations. Her works on paper combine computer code, geometric diagrams, and organic hand-drawn gestures to render the imagined figure. Far from a modern day Frankenstein, but not quite the bionic woman, the bodies Blalock creates absorb the digital into the corporeal, and question the possibility of a body without race, gender, or biological deficiency.
