Join us during First Friday Art Walk for the opening of our newest art exhibition at the Cornell Art Museum: "Emotional Intelligence: Sculpting the Language of the Digital Age" by Matthew LaPenta.

Matthew LaPenta creates bronze emoji sculptures that carry profound cultural importance. Seamlessly merging modern communication with timeless artistic craftsmanship. These sculptures transcend the digital realm, offering a tangible representation of the emotions and expressions that have become integral to contemporary human interaction.

By reimagining emojis in the enduring medium of bronze, LaPenta creates a captivating dialogue between technology and tradition, inviting viewers to contemplate the evolving ways we convey feelings in an increasingly interconnected world. These sculptures celebrate the universality of emotions and also serve as a reflection of our changing cultural landscape, where digital symbols take on physical form, preserving their significance for generations to come.
