Gallery – Level 3
Today’s innovators recognize the critical role of art-related disciplines in solving 21st-century problems. Fusion: A STEAM Gallery shows that art and design aren’t removed from science – they are essential complements.
You’ll find permanent pieces in the Fusion collection that highlight this relationship, including an interactive, visual theremin by Ginger Leigh; a one-dimensional dungeon-crawler game by Robin Baumgarten; a motorized color projection piece by Ryan Buyssens; and a multi-layered tribute to victims and survivors of the Pulse tragedy by Christy McCutchen.
Traveling exhibitions are featured throughout the year with an emphasis on local artists.

Identity and the Landscape by Gabe Cortese and Sheherazade Thenard
February 1 - April 23
Artists Gabe Cortese and Sheherazade Thenard explore figuration within an idealized landscape to explore complexities of their respective identities. Using metaphor and symbolism, they create images charged with beauty in hopes to lure in viewers.
The body functions as a narrative tool to explore personal experiences and elicit empathy from viewers. Using the landscape as psychological space, figures are encapsulated within an idealized environment to reveal their inner psyche. Cortese and Thenard are graduates from the University of Central Florida’s School of Visual Arts and Design.
