Jesse Krimes is an artist and a prison ex-inmate and much more. In 2008, soon after graduating with a BA in studio art from Millersville University, Krimes was incarcerated for cocaine possession. He was 23 years old, wouldn’t snitch on any of his contacts and was given a life sentence in retaliation. Eventually, his sentence was shortened and he spent six years in a prison for violent offenders. Kept in a cell for 23 hours a day, his freedom and identity were striped from him.

Internationally acclaimed artist and trained architect Tomás Saraceno uses iridescent panels, spider webs, and inflatable orbs in three fascinating sculptures on view. The centerpiece of the exhibition, Entangled Orbits, transforms the East Lobby with clusters of iridescent-paneled modules held in place by strings reminiscent of a spider web. Appearing somewhat like bubbles, these spherical modules evoke the artist’s visionary plans for “cloud cities,” which look to naturally occurring forms for inspiration and might provide environments for future human habitation.
