Exhibit: Rob Mango: RHAPSODY @ Charles H. MacNider Art Museum (Kinney-Lindstrom Gallery)
Mar 19 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Artist Rob Mango with his piece, Aura VI (Tango Twins), 2017, oil on canvas.

Inspired by life in New York City, artist Rob Mango explores the relationships between dissimilar elements as a way to discover meaning.  The artist perceives the world as a depository of references, with symbolism derived from cultural objects and the natural environment.  RHAPSODY includes vestiges of reality, carefully rendered architecture and natural settings, all of which are transformed into allegory, leading the viewer to an alternate reality. Open during all normal operation hours of the Museum. Exhibit will be on display until March 20, 2019.
