Fairytales, Fantasy and Fear


Elizabeth Brim. American, 1951- A Dark Tale, 2011. Forged and fabricated steel, flocked fibers, glass. Gift of Founders' Circle Ltd. in loving memory of Edward Kindall Jones. From the Fairytales, Fantasy and Fear exhibit at Mint Museum. Fairytales, Fantasy and Fear Fairytales have always been an important part of American life. Parents read these tales to toddlers, older children sing fairytale songs and Hollywood has made billions of dollars on film and television shows based on well known fairytales and fantasy stories. The Mint Museum of art is exploring this trend in an edgy and out-of-the-box exhibition called Fairytales, Fantasy and Fear. They've included artists from all over the world and the works span virtually every artistic medium. We'll talk about the art and meet two of the artists. We'll also look at the psychology behind the fairytale and the appetite Americans have for these stories. All that and more when Charlotte Talks.
