William King Museum of Art is proud to host this multi-media exhibition modeled after Jan Hurt’s many collaborative exhibitions from far and recent past- in particular the Tarot Card Art exhibition held at the Starving Artist Café in the late 1990s. Mapping the Cosmos began with thirteen hand-selected artists from the region who then asked one other artist to participate. The total twenty-seven artists randomly selected part of the Cosmos from a hat and were allowed to interpret their topic in any media they choose. The artists then sought out, in light of current knowledge or totally disregarding current knowledge, to re- imagine, explore, and reinterpret the Cosmos.
