Come celebrate the spirit of our time with spirits and snacks and a market you won’t believe at the opening of the visual arts exhibit and the festival!
In the midst of the opening, Qcc will host a Zeitgeist market with items from some of the visual artists invited to show, and a showcase of some of the many allies who have supported Qcc over our past 15 years! Also…expect the unexpected!
Scholars have long maintained that each era has a unique spirit, a nature or climate that sets it apart from all other epochs. In German, such a spirit is known as “Zeitgeist,” from the German words Zeit, meaning “time,” and Geist, meaning “spirit” or “ghost.” Some writers and artists assert that the true zeitgeist of an era cannot be known until the era is over, and several have declared that only artists or philosophers can adequately explain it.
