Museo Du Profundo Mundo is a truly immersive exhibit running now through July 31 at the Newport Visual Arts Center. Dioramas range from larger-than-life to miniatures that could fit in the palm of your hand- each full of detail and meaning. Spend an hour with the artist, Lauren Carrera, surrounded by her collections as she takes you through the origins of her “expedition,” including the meaning behind the titles (they all matter according to Carrera) and hidden clues in her work some of which you can see with your naked eye and some you need a magnifying glass to see. (yes, they are provided!) Carrera will also discuss how she approaches creating her work and what drives her passion to be an artist. There will be the opportunity to ask questions.
We recommend you arrive early to take in the exhibit before the talk.
