For the first exhibition of 20 13\, Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art is proud to present  Kevin Blythe Sampson: An Ill Wind Blowing f rom January 11 - April 20. There will be two receptions: M eet the Artist on Friday\, January 11 from 5-8pm and Celebrate the Work on Friday\, January 25 from 5-8pm. Both receptions are free and open to the public.

Intuit is pleased to host artist in residence\, Kevin Blythe Sampson\, over a two week period as he creates a site-specific vehicle in Intuit's Ma in Gallery using recycled materials. The sculpture will evolve over Sampson 's two week residency as Intuit encourages the general public to interact w ith Sampson while he is creating.

The sculpture is a boat-like vehicle that will be built in three distinctively different sections. The front will represent major corporations\, the middle of the boat will conta in objects that represent the liberal elite and the rear section of the boa t will represent the working poor and homeless. "After thinking about the c urrent state of politics in the United States and the current national conv ersation on civility\, I have decided to build an environment that contains a symbolic vessel that will be powered by the wind that is blowing across the world\," says Sampson. The title of the exhibition\, An Ill Wind Blowing\, is in reference to the history of protest\, the state of America today and the popular song "Blowin' in the Wind" by Bob D ylan.
