Florida Artists Series: Selections from Anomie 1492-2006. Arnold Mesches
Throughout his 65-year career as an artist and professor, Arnold Mesches has woven many narratives into lush and virtuosic paintings. Beginning in late-1989 and until mid-1996 Mesches created the ANOMIE series, paintings and collages that included overt and subtle references to the overlapping histories and multi-cultural aspects of life. The 48 large acrylic paintings and 150 collages encompassed postmodern concepts with old master techniques and structures.OCTOBER 13 – JANUARY 2

Cortada explores the sequence of events that make up life on the planet from the molecular to the monumental. The title of the exhibit also references a series of actions Cortada will set in motion to create of a unique strand of DNA. The artist will work with a molecular biologist to synthesize an actual DNA strand made from a sequence generated by museum visitors using Cortada’s art.OCTOBER 13 – JANUARY 2
