On display now until January 2018 // M-F 10am-3pm or by special appointment
Artists John Carr and Estée Ochoa in conjunction with Space 42 invite you to: Dream / Sueño / Rêve, a mural installation space of connectivity and possibility. Dreams are the shadows of something real. Through dreams we navigate our fears and desires. We confront relationships with ourselves, nature and one another. We convene with our ancestors and envision our destinies. From dreams, our will is born. Our centerpiece is a contemplation of the archetypal mother who initiates our identity in the world, and of Humanitas, the fulfillment of human potential through beneficence and knowledge of self-worth. The installation will include paintings, an altar, prints and photography.
