[September 25, 2012]  An exhibition of sculptures by Jason Hoffman opens at the Lincoln Art Institute, 112 S. McLean St., on Saturday and continues until Nov. 2. There will be a public reception for the artist on Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m.

Hoffman's work is related to acceptance and the power of healing. He takes objects that we see on a regular basis but never contemplate how they can be viewed out of their normal context.

"These objects are used to create open-ended sculptural narratives. The pieces seem direct, but underneath their skin, they hold infinite possibilities," Hoffman commented. "The reality and meaning of the art happens in the moment the viewer gives their own interpretation of the sculptures from their experiences. The objects and images alone do not have value. The value comes from the ability to help heal, which is made possible through the viewer."
