Saint Vincent College
300 Fraser Purchase Road, Latrobe
The opening reception for the first exhibit in the new Verostko Center for the Arts at Saint Vincent College will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 23. The Center is part of the Dale P. Latimer Library Arts & Technology Center. Entitled Roman Verostko and the Cloud of Unknowing: From Ideas in Mind to Ideas in Code, the exhibit will feature the work of Verostko, formerly a Benedictine monk at Saint Vincent.
Roman Verostko is a key figure in the development of generative, algorithmic art. Curated by Kerry Morgan and Melanie Pankau at Minneapolis College of Art and Design the exhibition features over seventy original works from Saint Vincent’s holdings. Verostko’s retrospective exhibition is organized around major themes that appear throughout Verostko’s work such as his search for an art of pure form, his interest in logic and language, his merging of Eastern and Western aesthetics and philosophy, and his understanding of his home “Pathway Studio” as a modern day electronic symposium. In addition, exhibitions featuring art and artifacts exploring Saint Vincent’s rich creative history will be on view.
