Spanish artist José Lerma uses Post-It notes, ribbon and bold brush strokes to explore the phrase "There is no such thing as a free lunch"—the Latin translation of the economic idiom provides the exhibit's title. Using bright materials and incorporating elements that reference his childhood, the exhibit presents Lerma's interpretation of heaven, as informed by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo’s 1757 fresco, Allegory of Merit Accompanied by Nobility and Virtue.
