by Jeff Katzin, PhD, Associate Curator State of the Art: Constructs exhibition at the Akron Art Museum brings together the work of twenty-one artists from across the United States who collectively embody the present moment in contemporary art. Their works address momentous topics that are deeply embedded in daily life, from sweeping global and environmental issues to the intricate complexities of personal identity, as well as some of the specific places and relationships in between. A special highlight of the exhibition is its inclusion of
June 21-July 22 Dear Cancer, you are as loyal as man’s best friend. It can sometimes take a bit for someone to get past your suspicious nature, but once they do, they’ll have a friend for life.
May 21-June 20 As a Gemini twin, you may often feel like you embody opposing characteristics at once. Though you may struggle to find the balance, leaning in your contradictions could prove to be an asset. Embrace the contrasts and see what happens!
April 20 – May 20 Like a tree with deep roots, you Taurus, will persist through the toughest trials. Your fatal flaw, though, is powering through without listening to others. If you learn to step back and get some feedback, you may grow even taller.
March 21 – April 19 As a mighty Aries, you have a trailblazing spirit. Since you’re always looking to be the first, you are incredibly independent. Make sure to include others along the way or else you could end up alone in your victories!
February 19 – March 20 Like a magnolia blossom, you seem delicate on the outside, but you’re strong and complex at your center. You’re great at sensing the needs of others. Just make sure to leave some time to reset yourself after giving so much.
January 20-February 18 You’re a regular Einstein, Aquarius! Everyone knows you as the problem solver who can think outside of the box. But be careful, you know-it-all! Deliver your smarts with some sugar and others will be more likely to get on board.
December 22-January 19 You, dear Capricorn, do not thrive in chaos. You love a good set of rules, a solid system, and a perfectly designed work of art. Embrace order over chaos, but don’t be afraid to let a little color in too!
November 22 – December 21 No person is an island, but as a Sagittarius you come pretty close. You have a fiercely independent spirit that helps you blaze new trails. Just don’t forget to bring others along every once in a while!
