GEORGE RODRIGUEZ | EL ZODÍACO FAMILIAR
Sculptor George Rodriguez collaborated with 13 Mexican and Chicanx/Chicane artists on his newest iteration of his Zodiac series, titled El Zodíaco Familiar for his exhibition at Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, WA.
All artists of various artistic disciplines respond to Rodriguez’s animal sculptures with the forms, tools, and aesthetics of their own artistic practices. Each artist has imbued their collaboratively-imagined sculpture, corresponding to the zodiac animal of their birth year, with personal perspective, folk tradition, and an intimate feeling of celebration. While each sculpture is as distinct as its maker, taken together, the twelve pieces vibrate with deep resonances of the familiar.
Now on view at the Whatcom Museum Lightcatcher Building in Bellingham, WA through October 24, 2021.
