Art For Your Life Journey

Artistic process as artistic product — you've probably heard some version of this idea before. The idea that the act of creation is as important as the final output isn't particularly new. It's in the same vein as the notion that the journey is as valuable as the destination. To artist James Rizzi, known as JMR, this concept is most prevalent in street art, with its speedy execution and experimental, rebellious nature. For Piece Out at WAAS Gallery (2722 Logan St.), JMR takes a special interest in visually recording the evolution of his process. His work both on paper and in three dimensions explores the balance between the conscious and subconscious mind. See the work during a free opening reception from 7-10 p.m. Saturday or through March 14. More information at
Sat., Jan. 31, 7-10 p.m., 2015
