The tarot inspired curator Michael Cuffe of Warholian Art to assemble this groups show; each artist was asked to re-imagine their favorite card from a standard deck, card from the Rider Waite deck, and the results are hanging at Modern Eden through April 6, 2013. Some works honored the traditional meanings of the indivudiual cards in Rider-Waite deck, while other artists took a more liberal and personal interpretation. Regardless of tradition or meaning, each artist made their card their own, in media not limited to strictly painting and drawing. Included also were neon, sculpture, and assemblage.
