"Home Sweet Home" Exhibit

"Home Sweet Home" Exhibit

Jun 12, 2007

We're intrigued by the description of Home Sweet Home, the inaugural exhibition at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art.

14 artists "examine the notion of home, not merely as a physical structure, but as a place formed by memories and a sense of belonging. From floor plans to coastlines to birds' nests to wallpaper, each of these artists shares his or her unique and distinctive interpretation of 'home.'"

For instance, Jim Christensen's ideal home (shown here) "consists of three scale model versions of the first homes that Christensen lived in as a child, stacked on top of one another."

The exhibit continues through Saturday, July 21, in downtown San Jose.
