Coming soon: opens October 3!
An original and unabashedly idealistic, art exhibition that champions the radiant and transformative power of hope. Over twenty-five visionary artists, among them many "super survivors" of enormous personal traumas, exhibit soulful creations reflecting their personal transcendence, and, often, a heightened or newfound creativity and sense of humor. Featuring artwork by Wayne Coyne, Bobby Adams, Herman Wallace & Jackie Sumell, Chris Roberts-Antieau, Margaret Munz-Losch, Nancy Josephson, Postsecrets selected by Frank Warren, and many more.
Behold the Sights and Wonders Just Ahead!
