Join the Arts Council of Princeton for the Opening Reception of May You Be Happy, a dual exhibition by Jon Sarkin and Hannah Fink. Their work will not only make you think, but it will also make you smile.
Sadly, mental health issues, loneliness, and isolation are all on the rise in our country, so much so that it’s been declared a “loneliness epidemic”. Our response? Find joy. The joy in Sarkin and Fink’s work, and art’s overall power to bring us together, gives us reason to celebrate.
Both artists take common themes, such as superheroes and shoes and comics, and reinterpret them into a contemporary conversation. From a giant old boot to the altered face of a hero, May You Be Happy promises to challenge the viewer’s perspective and contemplate what brings them solace, or excitement, or a sense of belonging.
This exhibition is held in conjunction with Arts & Health Mercer, created by a coalition of arts and culture organizations of the Mercer County region to bring a greater appreciation, understanding, and experience of how the arts are integral to the health of individuals and communities.
