The theme Simplicity in Complexity takes as its starting point the philosophy of the fund which is inspired by the soroban, a Japanese abacus dating back to the 1600s that utilizes a simple system of rods and beads to perform mathematical processes. The students exhibited have interpreted the theme with imagination, vision, and humor. They use formal approaches, such as complex patterns, personal narratives, and abstractions to investigate the small pieces that make up the whole, like the abacus. The range of artwork displays the passion and persistence with which the young artists approach their creative practice.
ArtsConnection and LionEye Capital Management proudly present To a Great Mind Nothing is Little. This year-long exhibition at LionEye opened November 25th, 2014 and includes work from 32 artists who hail from 20 different schools. As LionEye’s offices are not public, this gallery exists to share the artists’ stunning, refreshing work with the public.
“To a great mind nothing is little” are the words of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s estimable character, detective Sherlock Holmes. Holmes’ insight is explored by the artists in the exhibition through an array of techniques and approaches: meticulous attention to detail, visual explorations of the potential of every individual’s mind, and the appreciation of the beauty of natural surroundings that are often overlooked.
Please join us this Saturday, May 16th from 2:00-5:00 for the Grand Opening of Future Fix, an exhibition of student artwork curated by teens at the historic Old Bronx Borough Courthouse. Google Map it HERE. Click on the flyer below for more details and directions.
