Former JOURNEY LEAD SINGER ROBERT FLEISCHMAN: Artist Talk & Closing Reception, Wednesday, August 30, 6 - 8 pm (Chicago,IL.)

You are cordially invited to an artist talk & closing reception 


WEDNESDAY * AUGUST 30  *  6 to 8 pm
Artist / singer / songwriter / producer Robert Fleischman played with such notable bands 
as Journey, Vinnie Vincent, Channel and his current band, The Sky. He penned some of Journey's biggest hits such as "Wheel In the Sky" "Anytime" and "Winds of March" on the multiplatinum "Infinity" album as the band became a legendary success.  

In 2005,  Journey and Robert were recognized with a star on the
Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in 2016, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Join us Wednesday, August 30th for an intimate conversation with Robert about his own multi-dimensional journey from artist to rock star and back to his original roots as an artist.  

Fleischman recently met with Janet Davies of ABC News to talk about his exhibition "WORLD IN MY EYES" at Hilton | Asmus Contemporary and the inspiration behind it. 

"We often find that artists are multi-dimensional in their talents to express, create and take our breath away in ways we don't expect. "World in My Eyes" is just that, a poetic vision of the world that takes a journey into a myriad of places, from sun, sky, stars and constellations to figures that are flying into space or falling out of space; to the symbolism of fruit, birds, dancers and whatnot all reaching for something.  My favorite part is the reaching.  What is there in life but to continue to stretch ourselves, to aspire to, to jump or fall into our lives.  Robert's characters are all going or returning from somewhere.  Past, present, future?  Who is to tell?

Think you know the West? Think again!

Shifting Ground. Colliding Cultures. Colonizing Resources. The Sublime Open. Experimental Diversity. Traverse time and space across the Greater West.

Spanning 2,000 yearsUnsettled amasses 200 artworks by 80 artists living and/or working in a super-region we call the Greater West. This geographic area stretches from Alaska to Patagonia, and from Australia to the American West. Though ranging across thousands of miles, this region shares many similarities: vast expanses of open land, rich natural resources, diverse indigenous peoples, colonialism, and the ongoing conflicts that inevitably arise when these factors coexist. 

Organized by JoAnne Northrup, Nevada Museum of Art Curatorial Director and Curator of Contemporary Art; in collaboration with artist Ed Ruscha, Unsettled makes connections among the diverse cultures and artistic practices of this super-region.The show will travel to both the Anchorage Museum and Palm Springs Art Museum.
