NEW ALBANY —

 “Morrison might have been a conventionalist, but to me, he is a paradox nevertheless,” he said. “On one hand, he is a portraitist, a painstaking craftsman in oil paint. On the other, he also appears as the portrait of a pioneering spirit himself at the mercy of currents and politics of the time. The more I looked into this past I was beginning to see myself in it... what brings the shared histories of Morrison and painters of today together, I believe is the moment at which, for example, the artists mirror themselves in their initial gestures, as if witnessing their own becoming in the paint.”

The New Albany Public Art Project: Bicentennial Series (www.napublicart.org) is a four-year program featuring a rotating schedule of outdoor artworks that will be installed each year in the downtown area, beginning in 2010 and leading up to this year’s commemoration of New Albany's bicentennial.  The 2013 art installations will be installed in April and May. The community is invited to explore the artworks and talk with the artists during the New Albany Public Art Walk from 6 to 9 p.m. on June 22 [rain date June 29].
