Event Description:

How does the artistic imagination connect the past and present? How does cultural identity shape music and art? See and hear how three visual artists and one guitarist find answers and explore the “place” of memory in their work. The event begins with Serbian guitarist Nemanja Ostojic, who will share his music as well as the source of its inspiration. The exhibit, “Where Does Imagination Reside?” runs November 5 through November 13 and features fine art photographs by Susan Fleck, who was raised on an Indiana farm; knitting samples designed by Dagrun Bennett, a native of Norway; and oil paintings and pencil drawings by Svetlana Rakic, a native of Former Yugoslavia, who came to Indiana in 1992. After the guitar recital, hear all four artists discuss how memory and identity transform the creative process. Q&A and reception will follow. Free. Performance and exhibit will both be held at the Johnson Center for Fine Arts at Franklin College. Presented by Franklin College, Circle City Lodge of Sons of Norway, and Susan Fleck Photography.
