Art After Dark shines on humanity



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.
