Exhibit Concept: The intention of this exhibit is to illustrate reactions when things don't go our way. A journey stalled by a red light, construction that blocks our path; a bridge goes up and halts our progress. One thing leads to another… Perhaps these moments allow for us to notice something unexpected, a mother and child holding hands, a sunlit tree reveals magic, we hear the sweet music of a songbird. Life is motion, each unexpected change allows for an opportunity to see our world anew and alter our perspective.
