Thursday, April 7th 7- 8 PM
@ Miami Township Branch Library
Mychaelyn Michalec is an exhibiting artist in The DIG: Gem City Art Excavation and recipient of a ReImaging Works commission with The Dayton Metro Library & The Dayton Art Institute.
Michalec explores reconstructed memory and creative misuse of history using personal images as an autobiographical narrative. Remembering becomes a creative act and a way to redefine the past. Remembering becomes about reinvention and nostalgia for something that never existed. Using collected left over house paint from stay at home moms is symbolic of the idealized beauty of home life. Come learn more about Mychaelyn Michalec journey as an artist this Thursday night.

The DIG: Gem City Art Excavation is a mail art exhibition made up of work by artists who live and/ or work within a 30-mile radius of Dayton, OH. Mail art, otherwise known as postal art or correspondence art began in the late 50s with artist Ray Johnson and the New York Correspondence school. The DIG utilizes this egalitarian form breaking down the boundaries of the hierarchical art establishment by creating a system in which all local emerging and established artists are invited to participate. This installation celebrates the diversity and talents of the Dayton art community with works on canvas, paper, sculpture, textiles, dress making and ceramics.
