“Scientific discoveries by instruments like the Hubble Telescope and deep sea exploration vehicles amaze me, and impact my place in the world. New light is shed onto our past conceptions, and I seek to reconcile the old and new. I synthesize these to gain new understandings of our relationship to the natural world.” ….Sri Prabha 113 NW 5 Street
World and Eye Studio – “Lighthearted” – featuring Tom Andrew, Rosalia Curbelo, Joseph Davoli, Steve Mark, Jean Minuchin and Kenneth Moylan.
What exactly is humor in art? Is it an image exposing a quietly embarrassing moment that turns out to be universal? Or an outrageous exaggeration that reveals a truth? Is it the shock of something seen in a totally new and unexpected way? Like the Inuit word for snow there are MANY styles of humor – ironic, sarcastic, silly, bombastic, intellectual, whimsical, and on and on. What connects them is their humanity.

Food Trucks will be parked all along the streets of the walk so come hungry. Also, be prepared to park and walk a few blocks so bring comfortable shoes. Do not park in any abandoned lots as we have seen cars being towed when parked illegally.
