Welcome 2012 Happening- artist Kim Barry explores where our minds and hearts are at in America. The exhibit is built around the social interactive installation- The Dream Map- which engages each viewer to share their deepest heart's desire for their life. What can be learned from the answers and what forward movement does this conversation have for each person? The installation will be up all 2012 and will be collecting dreams from all over the United States. To learn more on how to share your dream- click onto the "Across America- Dream Map Project ' page at the top of the menu. View photos of the opening below.
