an online exhibition that expands on the scope of our programs
of works of art and innovation that address sustainability
of humans and nature in its many dimensions and expressions
When was the last time you felt complete happiness— sheer BLISS?
With so much disaster and hatred filling our newsfeeds, it’s easy to lose sight of what happiness means, and of how to pursue it. It can also be difficult to cope with its loss. More than ever, we owe it to ourselves and our communities to think about our relationship to this most human of emotions.
BLISS is an online exhibition through January 15, 2022, curated by art historian Yassana Croizat-Glazer, and presented at YCGFineArt.com in partnership with Streaming Museum, A Women’s Thing publication, and The Time In Children’s Arts Initiative which will receive a portion of the profits from the sale of art.
