All living things have in common: mortality. “Human Condition”, curated from the Richard Harris Art Collection, explores the ways different backgrounds, cultures and religions cope with mortality. Original works by Rembrandt, Toulouse-Lautrec, van Ultrect, Johns, and Mapplethorpe are among the pieces on display in this remarkable collection of Masters to Modernists.

Richard Harris said of the exhibit. “I have accumulated over 3000 objects exploring the related themes of death and mortality, from incidental pieces of ephemera and vernacular art to rare and beautiful masterpieces. These objects represent every medium and come from all over the world.”

“The subject matter of this exhibit invites viewers to reflect on death as it relates to themselves and our society. Taking in the varied visual artistic interpretations of mortality makes life more beautiful and our finite existence not so frightening,” Urban Edge curator Vickie Marasco said.
