Sam Belkowitz and Micah Danges (Penn Photography Staff) Curate and Exhibit in Show at Little Berlin, Opening Saturday, November 7, 6:00 - 10:00
Sam Belkowitz, Penn's Photography Facilities Manager, has curated and will show in an exhibit called Heaven on Earth at Little Berlin Gallery in Philadelphia. The show includes Micah Danges, the MFA Photography Technician, among the eighteen participating artists. The show tackles the ambitious task of mining one’s search for utopia. In this exhibition, Belkowitz asks each artist: where do you find perfection? Are the ideals of utopia even possible or attainable? These works coalesce into an environment without limits at Little Berlin, providing the viewer with a series of vantage points from which to experience the paradoxical nature of utopian dreams.
This exhibition will include video, installation, painting, sculpture, and photography. Featured artists include: Sam Belkowitz, Helen Cahng, Michelle Chong, Micah Danges, Joy Feasley, Richard Harrod, Nadia Hironaka, M. Ho, Aaron Igler, Eugene Lew, Tristin Lowe, Jacob Lunderby, Naomi Reis, Josh Rickards, Mary Smull, Matthew Suib, Paul Swenbeck, Artie Vierkant, and Linda Yun.
