The nostalgia and surprise felt when browsing at a flea market is a ripe field for artistic interpretation. A psychedelic print from the 70’s can inspire a color scheme or shape motif. A plastic bust of Scooby Doo can evoke early childhood Saturday mornings in front of the TV. A cover of an early genre pulp fiction paperback might be a poignant reminder of how prevalent attitudes have changed since the 1950’s.
This second incarnation of the Belongings show continues in the spirit of community and the reuse and re-imagining of objects. All artists are invited to participate by purchasing any object of inspiration from the Cleveland Street Flea Market at 438 N Cleveland to transform into (or use as inspiration for) a new work of art.
