Blending original music, fashion, visual media and light/sound installation with contemporary dance, Arien Wilkerson's Hartford-based performance group  TNMOT AZTRO's Projector Series is an utterly unique mix of elements created by local artists.

Projector 1.4 is the culminating installment of a performance series that has incorporated the manipulation of light, sound, space, and the human form into performances across the city and state. Using projected images and original scores, the interaction between the dancers, the projected image, and the audience blurs the boundary between performer and viewer.

About the exhibit:

“X Marks the Spot” is a series of sustainable art by Connecticut-based artist Joy Floyd. Floyd transforms "trash," such as advertisements and packaging, to create colorful, abstract collages.

"The excitement is in discovering the riches in these commonly abandoned materials and honoring them with new life." - Joy Floyd

This show is part of the Greater Hartford Arts Council's Remembering & Repurposing exhibition series, which explores the preservation and recreation of memories and discarded materials into works of art from oil paintings to mixed media. 
"X Marks the Spot" is on display through March 25. For more information on 100 Pearl Street Gallery, visit LetsGoArts.org/Gallery.
