Images from the Opening Reception
Yesterday is Tomorrow is a multi media reflection by two local artists
whose work speaks to the volatile times in which we live.
As we move ahead in the new century, we find our current events mirroring events that took place thirty-six years ago. The poster used to announce this exhibit is a revival of the KENT poster which was created in May 1970, a few weeks after the May 4th shootings. At the time, the country was waging a war in a foreign land while a cultural war raged at home.
Today, we find ourselves in a similar situation, at war abroad and culturally divided at home. The lessons of the past unlearned. What is old is new and what is new is old. The mistakes of the past repeated in unending cycles. The KENT poster from 1970 has been computerized for 2006. This piece and other pieces in the exhibit are computer assisted images.
Genral Jackett says his art is of the popopdadelic movement which came out of Kent in the late sixties and early seventies. Yesterday is tomorrow and this exhibit looks back to see the future.
