Beginning July 6, 2011, Pine Rest will be displaying Tracy Mae Fouts’ newest exhibit “Becoming: Beauty and Identity in the 21st Century.” The exhibit will be located in the Leep Art Gallery at the Postma Center at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services at 300 68th Street, Grand Rapids.
Fouts’ exhibit expresses her views on current American culture and society. The inspiration for her exhibit came from the dialogue between the King and a Shulamite in the Song of Solomon. Through the Song of Solomon message, Fouts encourages women to cherish their sensitivity and value womanhood.
Though it was written over 3,000 years ago, Fouts uses her models to represent a contemporary Shulamite living in today’s American society. The models create a trail for women of this generation to find their beauty and identity in God.
The exhibit will run July 6 – October 4, 2011. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. through 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional times are available by appointment. There is no admission fee. For more information, please call 616/222-4530.
