Revitalization, expansion and renewal characterized utopian visions for American cities throughout the twentieth century. During the late 1960s, following civil rights movements, the swell of suburban sprawl and the development of ambitious highway infrastructures nationally, American cities underwent radical change. And, as the landscape of of cities underwent radical change, so did the perception of art. An expanded definition of sculpture flourished as artists began to blur boundaries that had previously determined the form, placement, and purpose of art in the public realm.
Contemporary art practices today reflect interest in capturing the socio-political issues that shape, mark, fracture, and define the architectural landscape of America’s urban centers. CITY FLUX traces a legacy of public projects in Grand Rapids from the late 1960s to today as testaments to the city’s sustained emphasis on art in the public sphere. Six emerging artists present new works that respond to the ever-changing landscape of Grand Rapids through examining possible intersections among art, architecture and city-planning.

"Music for Elephants" examines the relationship between humans and elephantine megafauna in the last 13,000 years. Interdisciplinary artist, environmental activist, and naturalist Jenny Kendler will exhibit her work. Kendler's new piece, "Music for Elephants," presents data on the current acceleration of elephant extinction, in part because of the ivory trade. According to Kendler, "Elephants and humans have much in common. We are both highly social animals defined by lifelong family bonds. We share our reliance on intricate forms of communication within our groups. We are both species who are ecosystem engineers—yet humans are engineering a planet where there may no longer be room for elephants." The exhibition asks, what might we lose if another species of elephant becomes extinct again?
