The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art begins the 2017 exhibition season with Hidden, a thematic show that explores the concept of concealed or disguised imagery, visual secret codes or optical illusions. From Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa to Salvador Dali’s surrealist paintings, artists through the ages have included secret images, symbols or metaphorical content in their work as a means to communicate a specific idea or to evoke a particular emotion. This exhibition of work will include 2D and 3D art from the Artists of MarinMOCA who have interpreted this theme in various and thought-provoking ways.
We invite you to come explore and discover the work on view!
