Artists                            talk         a   lot                             about             freedom.                                                     So,                                                          recalling         the         expression                “free         as         a         bird,”                             Morton         Feldman     went         to         a         park         one         day                             and         spent         some         time                              watching         our         feathered         friends.                                 When          he   came          back,                          he          said,                                               “You    know?                                  They’re          not        free:                           they’re          fighting        over          bits          of           food.”

John Cage:

Artists                            talk         a
  lot                             about
            freedom.

                                                    So,
                                                       
recalling         the         expression
               “free         as         a         bird,”
                            Morton         Feldman
    went         to         a         park         one
        day                             and         spent
        some         time                             
watching         our         feathered         friends.


                                When          he
  came          back,
                         he          said,
                                              “You
   know?
                                 They’re          not
       free:
                          they’re          fighting
       over          bits          of           food.”

Featured Curator: Justin Ruckman

The cityscapes and industrial vignettes of Valerio D’Ospina are at once weighted with melancholy and alive with motion and energy. The italian-born artist demonstrates a refined technique that incorporates his distinctive emotive aesthetic with a masterful appreciation of the classic traditions.

Onna-bugeisha

Female women warriors of the Japanese upper class are known as onna-bugeisha (女武芸者). They are members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan who were trained to use weapons to protect their, honor, family, and household from enemies. Many of them were widows, wives, daughters, and even rebel women who engaged in battle beside samurai men.
