Exhibitions, Through the Eyes of Artists



Project Description

A kaleidoscope of frenetic activity bursts over the racetrack, airport and beach. The action is amplified through a variety of color, pattern and media, as the artist compiles images of the neighborhood’s defining characteristics and landmarks.

Artist Statement

“I see an excitement in the city that is rooted in the circle: the donut, a camera lens, the eclipse, the race track and the airplane’s flight path.”
