“Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design”

This fascinating exhibit showcases the work of artists who explore the ephemeral nature of life and art by using such humble materials as dirt, dust, ashes and sand. Among the pieces that will inspire artists-in-training are pieces created from smog by American artist Kim Abeles, life-size sculptures make of unfired dirt by American artist James Croak and sculptures made from ash by Chinese artist Zhang Huan. All ages.
