The George Washington Carver Museum presents Lost and Found opening reception
The George Washington Carver Museum will be exhibiting Lost and Found, from the selected works of Cheisel John. A native of Trinidad, John has lived and worked in the United States since age 14. Her art career started at the Parsons School of Design in New York City, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Illustration.
Lost and Found is predicated on the premise of reclaiming authentic items from our past, items which have been discarded as no longer useful. The artifacts appearing in her work have come from landfills, antique stores, junkyards and side streets. John repurposes theses artifacts into new and visually exciting compositions.
Following the opening reception, the exhibition will run until January 30, 2016.
