Myths & Metaphors
Upper Gallery: October 5 – November 3, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 5, 2 -5pm
A special presentation of award winning artist Geroge Boileau’s Myths & Metaphors, a large-scale steel and bronze sculpture, depicting a brass steam engine pulling a polished marble sphere back and forth between two monumental mountains. Boileau weaves together symbols of modernity and progress with the Greek legend of Sisyphus, a man condemned to forever repeat the same task of pushing a boulder up a mountain, only to see it roll down again. Explored through a contemporary lens, Boileau reveals a potent allegory for modern life and the resilience of the human spirit.
