Children’s Museum of the Arts presents Far, Far Away, on view in the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery. Far, Far Away is an exhibition that considers the possibility of alternate worlds, dreamscapes and imagined landscapes — places where adventures occur and fantasy takes over.
Artworks featured in this exhibition will captivate and inspire us by evoking dreams of places that may only exist in our imaginations. In practice, many of these works highlight the artist’s process of manipulation. At the heart, these works celebrate storytelling and the power of visual art to weave a tale without using any text at all. Some works consist of dream-like fantasies filled with details and discoveries, while others address issues of youthful turmoil, awkward transitions between childhood and adulthood, or of ever- changing identity or illusion. Audiences are urged to fill in the blanks for themselves, identify with the familiar and unfamiliar, and venture into the unknown, all before returning home safely. Please join us as we transport you into a world of transformation where anything is possible.
