The exhibit "Rocío Rodríguez- Divergent Fictions: A Selection of Works from 19882012" is on view through Nov. 4 on the third floor galleries at the Columbus Museum.
The artist's works reflect on universal themes referencing the opposing forces of nature, beauty, war, conflict and pain. Rodríguez came to the United States from Cuba, in 1961. As exiles, her family maintained strong emotional attachment to their language and memories.
In America, Rodriguez learned to navigate between two cultures and through this experience began to view the world with a unique perspective. This duality serves as the philosophical framework from which much of her work has grown. This exciting exhibition celebrates twenty-five years of work by Rocio Rodriquez, an important contemporary Cuban born, American artist.
Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday and Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Thursday, 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Museum admission is free.
