Post Secret

In November 2004, Frank Warren began his community art project by handing out postcards to strangers and leaving them in public places in the Washington, D.C. area. Each self-addressed card invited people to anonymously share a secret. The two requirements were: The secret had to be true and it had to be something that had never been told to another person. Today, Warren has been mailed more than 100,000 highly personal and artfully decorated postcards illustrating the soulful secrets we never voice. This international phenomenon has spawned three successful books (and a fourth on the way), including The New York Times bestseller: PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives and an award winning website that receives more than four million visitors every month. The PostSecret exhibition tour was organized by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC, in cooperation with Frank Warren.What are your thoughts on Post Secret and how has it affected you?

Brian Ransom

Exhibit Showing

March 15 – April 20, 2008
Brian Ransom creates sculptural, tuned musical instruments using ceramics. Ransom says, "All of these instruments, which include horns, flutes, saxophones, bells, strings, percussion, and electronics, share the unusual haunting timbre of sound that is produced by the clay body I designed. Most are multi-media and vapor-fired." Ransom currently teaches ceramics at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. He also performs on his original ceramic musical instruments throughout the U.S. and internationally, and makes many of his own recordings including film and dance scores.

James Michaels

March 15 – May 11, 2008
Whether painting realistic tableaus reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance or Pop paintings of cultural icons, Tampa Bay artist James Michaels creates dramatic, large scale paintings. Hypnotic by virtue of their scale and subject matter, the work envelopes the viewer. Complex in imagery, religious and secular symbolism, and overflowing with cultural references, Michaels adroitly reflects the nature of our times. Come to Brevard Art Museum and check it out!!
