I attended the reception on Wednesday, March 26.  The art was so globally aware and media diversified.  I found all the art to be well executed and each artist had his/her own style.  Conversations with viewers and artists alike were compelling. The additional artists’ who  were were given decades frequently included in their work references to what the artist  had done in the individual year.  For example the decade of the 1990s  image and artist’s statement included reference to Mandela.

Here is a reference to that artist:
