The opening celebration for Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension at the Long Beach Museum of Art presented in collaboration with POW! WOW! Long Beach and Thinkspace Gallery sold out of tickets and set the mood for the summer. Smiling faces, fascinated spectators, and passionate art enthusiasts explored Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension engaging with the artist and the art.

The public and museum members enjoyed a myriad of installations and murals created with various materials ranging from fiber, wood, plastics, acrylics, resins, cardboard, textiles, paints, ceramics, paper,  and reclaimed materials.  Last summer’s exhibition, Vitality & Verve : Transforming the Urban Landscape saw over 22,000 visitors during its run and we’re hoping this latest show beats that record.

‘Vitality & Verve : In The Third Dimension’ at the LBMA | Upstairs

LBMA Vitality and Verve In The Third Dimension

“Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension” at the Long Beach Museum of Art presented in collaboration with POW! WOW! Long Beach and Thinkspace Gallery opened to the public July 16th.  A selection of the best artists who have carved out a place for themselves within the mural and new contemporary art movement; were invited to transform the 8,000 sq ft space within the walls of the Long Beach Museum of Art. Creating site-specific installations, murals, and sculptural vignettes; the various artists used a plethora of materials to push their own artistic boundaries. Ariel DeAndrea’s paper cranes fly through the front part of the museum, while Ernest Zacharevic’s installation in collaboration with Martha Cooper transports you to the streets of New York.

The artists’ materials are as varied as their own artistic voices; using materials ranging from fiber, wood, plastics, acrylics, resins, cardboard, textiles, paints, ceramics, paper,  and reclaimed materials pushed their work into the third dimension.

Below is a visual tour of the upstairs portion of the Long Beach Museum of Art, photos courtesy of Birdman Photography. This is only half of the exhibition which must be seen in person. The presentation of Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension is made possible by the generous support of The Port of Long Beach, JetBlue, Pasadena Art Alliance, the Bauer Foundation, and Thinkspace Gallery.

Long Beach Post Interview with Cinta Vidal

Long Beach Post Cinta Vidal

The Long Beach Post interviewed artist Cinta Vidal to discuss her murals for Pow! Wow! Long Beach and ‘Vitality and Verve: In The Third Dimension‘ at the Long Beach Museum of Art. We are excited to be showing Cinta Vidal’s latest body of work at Thinkspace Gallery for Gravities in the Project Room opening this Saturday, July 23rd. Visit the Long Beach Post website for the full interview and insight into this perspective bending artist.

Cinta Vidal’s work may remind you of M.C. Escher’s mind-boggling staircase illusion, or even the movie Inception, where Parisian streets fold over unto themselves. However, these paintings are more about the distances between our varying perspectives and how, although we may live and breathe in close proximity to each other, we may also be living in completely different dimensions. – Long Beach Post
