|Lina Tharsing "Making a New Forest Exhibit" at UK Hospital - Lexington, Ky.|
The museum itself contains an amazing collection of dioramas portraying themselves wildlife in natural habitats. Many of these old dioramas can seem dated to museum-goers today, whose appreciation is for fast action. Though Tharsing does nothing to 'speed up' the dioramas, her unique interpretation of their creation itself resonates.
But to those who have constructed a school display or a volcano for a science fair, there is a connection to the real world. And yet, there is a connection to the divine as God found his creation "good" in Genesis. So, too, these dioramists and artists found their creation good. For decades, they have withstood time at the iconic New York institution.
Find your own truth in Tharsing's "Making a New Forest." It is presented by UK Arts in Healthcare and the art can be seen in the East Gallery of the UK Albert B. Chandler Medical Center. An opening reception will be held Friday, April 27 from 6-8 p.m. with details being available and reservations made on Facebook.
