José Bernal
Obra de Arte
On View thru - February 21, 2016
Cameron Art Museum presents the first retrospective of Cuban born-American artist José Bernal (1925-2010). Born in Santa Clara, Cuba, Bernal excelled at both music and visual art as a child and, after receiving his Master’s Degree, began his teaching career while continuing to produce his artwork. In 1961, Bernal was arrested for unpatriotic behavior for refusal to work in the sugar cane fields. After this incident, Bernal and his wife Estela secured visas for themselves and their three children to leave Cuba for America and, by 1962, relocated to Chicago. Although he rarely exhibited, Bernal worked prolifically, producing hundreds of works throughout his lifetime and exploring the various mediums of painting, collage, assemblage and ceramics. Works curated for this exhibition are from the Bernal family, other private collections as well as ten museums across the US including Cameron Art Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, San Antonio Museum of Art, Tucson Museum of Art and El Museo del Barrio.
This exhibition is sponsored in part by Wells Fargo, N.A.

INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION: Response is the Medium
On View thru January 10, 2016
In 1977 interactive art pioneer Myron W. Kruger stated, “The beauty of the visual and aural response is secondary. Response is the medium! As an art form, this is unique. Instead of an artist creating a piece of artwork, the artist is creating a sequence of possibilities.” The exhibition Response is the Medium explores the innovative ways artists are utilizing technology, perception and audience interaction in creating their work. The Cameron Art Museum explores the ever-evolving field of interactive artwork with pioneers and vanguards in this medium; media artists Brian Knep, Daniel Rozin and Purring Tiger (Aaron Sherwood and Kiori Kawai); metalsmith Gabriel Craig and composer Michael Remson. This exhibition is sponsored in part by Live Oak Bank.
