Art for the new millennium

About 20 nationally recognized and emerging local artists have transformed places at the University and in the sur- ounding community this summer as part of the Bayly Art Museum's special exhibition, "Hindsight/Fore-site: Art for the New Millennium."

Marriage Tree, by Dennis Oppenheim.

The exhibit features site-specific works in both public and private locations, placed throughout Charlottesville, Albermarle and Orange counties. The works explore Thomas Jefferson's vast influence and varied contributions to American history.

Contributing artists include: Ann Hamilton, Dennis Oppenheim, Agnes Denes, Martha Jackson-Jarvis, Lucio Pozzi, William Bennett, Rosemarie Fiore, Daniel Reeves and Tim Curtis. Other local exhibitors are: Susan Bacik, Robert Strini, Barbara MacCallum, Susan Chowder, Dan Mahon, Robert Reed, Beatrix Ost and Todd Murphy.

Throughout April and early June, area volunteers collaborated with the artists to help produce the exhibition, which was curated by Lyn Bolen Rushton, owner of Les Yeux du Monde Gallery in Charlottesville. The exhibit kicked off June 17 with community-centered activities recognizing the artists.

A map of the sites and information are available at http://www.virginia.edu/~bayly or by calling the museum at 924-3592.
