Visitors chat at the opening reception for Art in Motion/Guayasamin's Ecuador Unframed, an exhibit featured at the KY Museum through Feb. 28th. On the left, Guayasamin's five panel mural depicts the inerent antagonisms and racial multiplicity of the Ecuadorian nation. On the right, the panels are digitized, allowing visitors to rearrange them, thus keeping true to the artist's vision of a fluid and ever-changing identity.
