The Peace of Art: Window Installation by Sculptor Jonah Ortiz
Sculptor Jonah Ortiz created an art installation in the window of The Franklin Shop, where the artist will meet Art Walkers tonight. The window installation represents the act of meditation and how that state of peace and higher consciousness relates to the creation, observation and understanding of art. Jonah Ortiz: “The creation of this sculpture correlates with my journey to Florida and the metamorphosis that's taking place – both in my life and my art.” Only a year ago, Jonah Ortiz (37) moved from Chicago to Fort Myers. The exhibition “Giggles & Gears” at the Rene Miville Gallery on the mezzanine of the shops is his first major show in the area.
