Life is hard, and current times are no exception. As we enter the new year, our perspective should be motivated for a positive state of mind, leading us to a successful cycle. In this exhibition, the concept is simple: to provide that extra enticement to live our lives to the fullest. Put aside all the things that bring you down and focus on art that visually represents the lighter side of life.

Jessica Kallista, Scott Larson, Akemi Maegawa, Megan Maher, Carolina Mayorga, Frank McCauley, Zsudayka Nzinga, Olivia Tripp Morrow, Kiel Posner, Johab Silva, Gabriel Soto, James S. Terrell

Robin Bell will fuse his 3D and sample-based structural art with light interventions in the Otis Street Arts Project’s gallery. The space will serve as a canvas for displaying, creating, and expanding his work over a two-month period. Visitors are encouraged to witness the evolution of the piece by attending both at the start and end of the show. Through this exhibition, Robin hopes to push himself and other DMV artists to confront and comprehend our shared challenges wih site-specific interventions.
