The Institute for Community Research is sponsoring "Ancestors: Day of the Dead Celebration." This will be a multi-media exhibit featuring 10 New England artists and is curated by Guatemalan Maestro Balam Soto of Hartford, CT. As readers of this blog may know, Balam Soto is an exceptional artist whose philosophy embraces a concept called modern thinking. "Information comes to us rapidly and through several channels. As a consequence, it expands our concepts, ideas and potential. Modern thinking is dynamic, upgradable and modular..." Artist Soto utilizes not only traditional media but is exploring and implementing the uses of technology as an art form.
An artist reception will be held from 5 to 8 pm on October 24, 2008 and the show runs thru. Nov 21, 2008.
Gallery hours are 10 am to 5 pm on weekdays, during special weekend
