Countdown to view Hybrid's Paradise curated show / by Sarvin Haghighi


We are now few days away from the grand opening of Evanston Art Center (EAC)'s new beautiful location. Hybrid's Paradise is a group exhibition curated by Sergio Gomez. This installation was challenging for me but again as I always say, I believe as an artist, we should be challenged every now and then and get out of our comfort zones.

After many trips to HomeDepot and lots of other places, the creation of the installation was going as per planned. Although there were some days when things went wrong but again the end result turned out to be what I wanted.

The piece weighs 300 pounds so another big challenge was to get it in the truck and take it to the Evanston Art Center. My lovely husband helped me massively and with his help - and some others of course - we were able to get it done.

It was like a huge weight was off of my shoulders. The whole process was stressful and I didn't know if it will be what I envisioned it to be, but now looking at it, sitting on a great location behind one of the biggest windows of EAC, I felt so satisfied.

The opening is on June 14th from 1-4 pm and we are expecting a lot of people to show up. It's going to be a great show - Stay tuned for some photos and news during and after the opening. Whispering walls are waiting for you to come say hi!
