SPARTANBURG ART MUSEUM “IN THEIR ELEMENT” ON VIEW NOW


11.15.2018 - 02.10.2019

Humans have used symbols of earth, fire, water, and air for millennia, using them as metaphors to communicate universal ideals and truths about the world in which we live. This exhibition dives into a variety of contemporary practices that continue to express our awe, reverence, and dependence on two of the four Aristotelian elements, in unexpected and dynamic ways.
