Fort Wayne Museum of Art presents Infinite Mirror. American Identity

The Fort Wayne Museum of Art presents Infinite Mirror. American Identity, an exhibition on view through July 15, 2012.

This exhibition features 63 multi-media works including paintings, works on paper, photographs and video by culturally diverse artists from across the United States. Infinite Mirror is realized through the collective efforts of Artrain, Inc. and a group of independent curators selecting works of art by established and emerging American artists.

The central theme is the use of portraiture and figuration as symbols for emotional and social ideas. Artwork in the exhibition uses portraiture to depict circumstances and experiences of multicultural populations in present-day America. The artwork is personal, reflective, autobiographical and of a high technical quality, creating an exhibition that is both visually beautiful as well as socially relevant. The exhibition includes the work of first generation Americans and emerging new immigrant artists that examines issues and themes of race, gender, religion, history, politics and family. Included are such internationally renowned artist as Luis Jimenez, Tomie Arai, Elizabeth Catlett and Faith Ringgold.

Infinite Mirror was awarded grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support comes from MetLife Foundation, the Michigan Council for the Arts and the International Fine Print Dealers Association. – www.fwmoa.org
