The Butler Institute of Art in Youngstown extended Tobi Kahn’s first solo exhibition, “Anointed Time” to May 14 because of an overwhelming response.
The exhibition includes more than 30 years of Kahn’s work dating back to the early 1980s, featuring sculptures and ceremonial objects, he said from New York.
Each piece envelopes time in different ways, Kahn said, giving his “Omer Counter” as an example. The pieces build upon each other during the counting of the Omer as every day passes creating a wall sculpture on the 49th day.
“What interests me is showing people what they don’t ordinarily think about. A way to delineate time,” he said. “I want to make something visual that each day you were building upon the previous piece … it looks different because of the pieces next to it.”
Entrance to the exhibit is free.
The museum is at 524 Wick Ave.
