HUMAN POTENTIAL Art Show

About the HUMAN POTENTIAL Show

Human Potential has hit Bonita Springs Florida with a bang. Internationally Recognized Artists Lou Rizzolo and Trinh Mai share their inspiring works in the Historic Great House on the property of Shangri-La Springs. The art opening on February 10th from 6pm-9pm offers much to the attendees. Shangri-La brings to town the works of the BIGThink creator Lou Rizzolo who has collaboratively installed environmental mulit-media works in Canada, France, Switzerland, Norway and the USA. Trinh Mai is a Vietnamese artist who uses her artwork to understand her history and her present will be showcasing a series she created titled 40 Days Has September where she describes "Through my own hardships, I referenced the struggle of my predecessors..." Trinh has recently been selected by The Artist Odessey to be the featured artist in their first documentary. Rizzolo and Trinh works will be on view for 2 months culminating with a collaborative event planned in March on the property with Lou himself. The art openings at Shangri-La Springs are multi-meida events themselves.

With the Human Potential theme you will not only get to tour the historic Shangri-La Springs on this night but you can take a free yoga class from 7 to 8pm, experience the amazing sidewalk chalk art by Jane Portaluppi Durand, join in the drumming circle with African drummer and dulcimer player helping to keep the rhythm going, create an original work of art yourself with Susan Sholle-Martin at the free butterfly card making table, purchase the hand crafted jewelry of local artist Jessica Hesser and experience live music by Alchymie on the baby grand accompanied by Native American Flute. You just might awaken your human potential on this magical evening offered for free to the community.

About the HUMAN POTENTIAL featured artists

Lou Rizzolo

As professor emeritus, my career has focused on becoming a significant artist, an inspiring teacher and a scholarly researcher. Finishing my undergraduate art degree from Western Michigan University, my graduate art degree from the University of Iowa and postgraduate studies in painting at the University of Georgia, I won National Best of Show in painting in Texas. By 1990 my art research paralleled painting focusing on art and technology initially from a Sabbatical Leave to study environmental multimedia installation/performance, air inflation design and laser light technology at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This research led me to form the Art/Education/Tech group BIGThink, which presents lectures and workshops from brain/art research on Creativity Education and Collaboration, Outreach Community Programs, Health and Well Being Research and Environmental Multimedia Sculptural Installation/ Performances. +Read Full Bio (PDF)
