Visit www.12secondchili.com for more information on our award winning chili!

We are also pleased to welcome Lori Brubaker and some of the works from exhibition; Metamorphosis. She is the Art Gallery intern at IU Kokomo. Through this internship she has had the opportunity to curate her own show, Metamorphosis.  Her inspiration for the chosen theme came from her love of how objects can change. This change can arise rapidly, or take years to accomplish. She also finds it interesting that the alterations do not always occur naturally, but instead some are manipulated.

Artists from all over submitted their work portraying what metamorphosis meant to them. Lori then had the pleasure of going through and starting the difficult selection process of which pieces she wished to exhibit in her show.

On display here, at LeaderOne Financial, are six pieces that were created by some of the artists that will have other pieces on exhibition at the IU Kokomo Art Gallery. The exhibition opening will be on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 from 4pm-7pm and will run through Saturday, March 14th.  It is free and open to the public, so everyone is urged to stop by IU Kokomo’s Art Gallery to see all the other great artwork on display.
