"Aegean Echos", 28 piece solo exhibit at Headley-Whitney Museum. A four month exhibit with soundscape, poetry and dance interpretations of Steene's work. The works were all based on impressions from the island of Paros, in the Aegean Sea. Paintings on wood using oil glazes over marble dust and metal, as well as collaged prints with marble dust and oil glazes.
The museum wants to exhibit more contemporary work, and Helene Steene was invited
The artist selected the works, placed them and museum staff installed them. The museum created educational panels of the process of making the works. Stephanie Harris, Contemporary Dance, created a dance based on the art works, and KY poets created poems based on the works, which were performed in the space.
It was wonderful and very touching to see how a dancer and poets interpreted the work.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
