Friday 4/3: LACED @ Wisconsin Overlook





EVOLUTION OF CULTURE
This current time marks a point in history. Is it the beginning of a shift? Or is it a new
case on the same device? With a new president, a new optimistic outlook, and new
global view perspective by the world, American culture automatically leaps into the
door of opportunity- a mainstream opportunity to share and be open to
inclusiveness. It also means a new found evolution of thought, new expression of
individuality, yet juxtaposed with new expressions of association-concepts of life
experiences represented as family, heritage, tradition,
language, style, diction and
life experiences—CULTURE.

Cul ture [kuhl-cher]:
:a particular form or stage of civilization, as that of a certain nation or period.
:the behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular social, ethnic, or age group
:the quality in a person or society that arises from a concern for what is regarded as excellent in arts

This makes us who we are, uniquely cultural, uniquely devoted to those subtleties
and conformities, traditions that associate us with a specific group, form or
expression. Featured artists at this event will explore our past, present and future
with the EVOLUTION OF CULTURE; the consistent transcendence of it, how it is
exported, represented, adhered to, understood, defied, related, and what this means
to them in American society.
