Knew Normal/Off the Charts


Aug. 29 through Oct. 31, Nov. 21 through Jan. 9, 2016

516 Arts (516 Central SW)

Free for all ages

As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words” so what better way to join in the dialogue than to hop over to 516 Arts (516 Central SW) to view gallery exhibits that are tackling environmental controversy head-on. “Knew Normal” is a collection from multiple artists that explores the way climate change affects both our exterior surroundings and interior environments—our bodies and psyches. Also showing is “Off the Charts,” a local, national and international collection that examines the visual language artists use to portray our evolving world. Both shows end on Oct. 31 to make way for “Bewilderness” and “Rise.” The former explores the extremes of pristine wilderness and human control/exploitation while the latter looks back at navigational profiling for answers on how we will navigate the changes occurring in our world on a physical level.
