The Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square presents Looking Glass, a group exhibition featuring contemporary artwork that immerses the viewer into the piece by creating their own reflection. The viewer and the space around the piece become a part of the work itself.
The exhibition was chosen as the first show in the newly renovated interior to showcase the Museum like never before and to illustrate the Museum’s mission to present the best and brightest in contemporary art and to serve our community of visitors and artists from Delray Beach and across the globe. Viewers will experience a sense of belonging and literally see themselves in the museum.

- Chul Hyun Ahn (South Korea) will show one of his light sculptures that portrays the illusion of infinity, created with the use of mirrors.
- Miya Ando (New York) is showing works on paper in a series called ‘gekkou’ (moon light) which captures reflected light, as well as sculptures created with silver nitrate and a large work that vaguely reflects the viewer.
- Billy Al Bengston (Los Angeles) is showing one abstract reflective work.
- Lee Borthwick (UK) will display a large, hanging mirrored piece.

- Brookhart Jonquil (Miami) will show sculptural pieces iconic of his style which utilize mirror, steel, and glass to create deep reflections within the piece.
- Guillaume Lachapelle (Montreal) has used mirrors in four pieces depicting scenes that seem to capture infinity, transporting the viewer into another world.
