The struggle is ancient to understand the relationships between humanity and humanity, humanity and nature, and humanity and the spirit world. And it's those dynamics that surround the just-opened "Treasures of El Dorado: Colombian Gold and Ceramics in Antiquity" exhibit at Orlando Museum of Art.
In part to celebrate, in part to expand the blockbuster exhibit, the museum challenged local artists to a 20th-century interpretation of those relationships. The results will be showcased in "Relationships/Relaciones," the final offering of this year's socially oriented Art After Dark series (which promotes awareness and membership of the OMA). Curated by artist/teacher Kimberly Mathis-Wolf, the works will be accompanied by upbeat Latin music, demos of tango and salsa, poetry readings and open touring of "Treasures." Throw in light refreshments and a cash bar, and for $7 this is a lively way to indulge in the arts.
