Dream Boxes by Jairo Marin: Opening Reception Friday Sept. 14 @ 7 PM @ Underground Gallery Jairo Marín has spent years collecting old photographs, postcards, toys and vintage artifacts, which he uses to construct these whimsical, yet powerful shadow boxes. In an instant, they transport you to a moment in childhood; bring a smile to your face; or simply make you reflect. These miniature realms are populated by characters whose stories will both intrigue and enchant you. Jairo Marin was born in Armenia, Colombia. He is a journalist, TV producer, photographer and storyteller. He holds a MA degree in International Journalism from USC in Los Angeles and a BA in Communications/Journalism from Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano in Bogotá.UNDERGROUND GALLERY1612 Waterloo St. L.A. 90026 Silverlake www.undergroundgallery.orgwww.jairomarin.
