The Dream Surge | Peter Lojewski

Inspired by an unusual dream about sick, migrating sea turtles, Peter Lojewski created an installation, paintings, photography, and digital art.

Turtles are a symbol of good luck, longevity, peace, patience, and perseverance. The turtle is thought of as the mother of all warships, and it carries goodness to win over evil.  After nuclear atomic bombs were tested in the South Pacific, sea turtle shells were seen floating in the water.

Opening night of this exhibition will feature a movement and monologue performance.
