The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood is pleased to present Artists and Identity: Portraiture, performance, doppelgängers, and disguise. This exhibition takes a multi-level approach to understand the presentation and expression of oneself in contemporary art. Both playful and poetic, each of these artists conveys representations or misrepresentations of persona through painting, sculpture, video, performance. The exhibition will introduce ideas to the general public to encourage observation and self-perception; they are encouraged to look longer or look twice.

Also on view at the Center is Mark Fleuridor: Black Castor Oil, an Oolite Arts Collaboration in Gallery 2 and a diverse exhibition of international masks Masks: From the Faces of the World Collection of Dr. Donna L. Goldstein in the Community Gallery.
