    Round & Round: The Circle at Center Stage

    The dot is our most basic artistic mark, a point existing in one dimension. Expanded to a circle, the shape is fundamental to human development and how we categorize what we see around us. Children recognize circles in natural anf man-made objects: the sun, their eyes, buttons, coins, and food. 

    This exhibition of works from the KIA collection presents the circle in myriad manifestations, as artists from diverse cultures recognize the circle's power as a line without beginning or end, symbolizing eternity and so much more. From hard-edged Op Art prints to photographs of natural objects, the circular form holds an attraction that cannot be denied, and serves as inspiration for immense artistic versatility. Works on view demonstrate the dramatic range and ubiquitous flexibility of the circular form.
