Instructions for Peace

Opening Tuesday: A triumph of hope over experience, this idealistic multimedia exhibition speaks to the childlike desire to make the world a better place, one small change at a time. Curator Marlina Gonzalez has rounded up a miscellany of contemporary photos, posters, postcards, dolls, collages, a light show and other expressions of a fervent passion for harmony and calm in a world torn by seemingly endless violence. Mina Blyly Strauss created the colorful 2013 photographic montage shown here of hands holding flowers. (June 25-July 20. Free. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tue.-Sat., Katherine E. Nash Gallery, Regis Center for Art, University of Minnesota, 405 21st Av. S., Mpls. 612-624-7530 or www.art.umn.edu)
