First Friday attendees will want to explore Jamiah Calvin's The Healing, which ends November 2. As an artist, Calvin uses his art to reflect self-healing while yet striving for peace and tranquility in his own life. His work displays vulnerability, flaws, imperfections, pain; but in all things the complex beauty of human nature. This exhibition is on display in the NIPSCO Art Education Studios.
Attendees can also enjoy the work of Dorothy Graden in Perceived Realities, on display in the NIPSCO Art Education Studios. Graden’s unique paintings are inspired by time spent hiking through the mountains and deserts of the American Southwest while studying ancient petroglyphs and prehistoric rock paintings.
Those interested in a more in-depth look at Living Architecture are also invited to attend two free events on November 9. From 11:00 AM to noon, LCA will host a curator-led tour of the exhibition. Between 1 PM and 4 PM, families are invited to the center for a Family Day featuring age-appropriate interpretive tours and onsite artmaking.
High resolution images are available upon request.
