If you’ve ever found yourself wondering what in the world artists are thinking, The Vision Board Show is a chance to find out. Curated by Elizabeth Valdez, an artist herself and a believer in the power of creative visualization, this pageant of mixed media experimentation brings together dozens of artists — the majority of whom do not usually work in or exhibit anything like collage — to storyboard the future in anyway they see fit. The eclectic and surprising results range from specific political justice fantasies to meditations, sustainability virtue-signaling, abstract optimism, escapism, sex, paradise, angst, and a return to nature.
