Burlington, VT – An innovative and envelop pushing art experience known as GUMBO set to open at Burlington College on March 26th 2009. With intent to celebrate, challenge, and examine the state of the society, GUMBO recruits many artists with differing artistic backgrounds and perspectives.

The show to consist of artists working in mediums such as painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, film & video art, and performance art, among others.

Curated by Dylan Kelley (23), GUMBO aims to challenge, inspire, and engage attendees in a discussion of the interconnectivity of ideas regarding art, humanity, and politics.

"All of the artists are being pushed to create and show work about issues and ideas they feel very strongly about. We're interested in work that moves people in a very human, very powerful way" says Kelley. "We're all very hungry to communicate and discuss who we are as individuals and as a culture. What's our place in society? What's our place in the world? Where are we headed in the future?"

Kelley is currently a documentary studies and photography student at Burlington College.
