Pablo Picaso once said that art washes the dust off of daily life. This year especially, artists have felt disconnect from their communities and their art. An exhibit at the Copper Country Community Art Center in Hancock depicts the frustration that comes with not having that connection to the magic of the planet, artist Christina Hagedorn explained.
Hagedorn has always tried to make art with whatever she can find. Resourcefulness became a major aspect in her art after switching majors, in part of gathering these every day materials feels magical to her.
Art is considered a universal language. It can transcend cultural barriers and connect us. Hagedorn’s exhibit seeks to answer questions and perhaps provide some comfort to people who may feel disconnected to that sense of magic. The art exhibit will be on display at the Copper Country Community Art Center until September 30th.
