The Painting Center is pleased to present The Retrieval of the Beautiful an exhibition inspired by Galen Johnson’s book The Retrieval of the Beautiful  (Northwestern University Press). The book is a dynamic discussion of existence and consciousness of human activity, including art. Johnson writes, “Here it is enough to see that beauty and the sublime blend into one another when the beautiful grows powerful, transcendent and majestic.” Something beautiful seduces you and draws you in. The exhibition features 84 artists working in variety of media who are exploring beauty and phenomenology in art.
