Local artist, 1906 South Flores arts complex proprietor and SMART (Supporting Multiple Arts Resources Together) executive director Andy Benavides helps FL!GHT kick off an intriguing new exhibition series designed to fill “unexpected windows of time” in the gallery’s regularly scheduled programming. After being given a mere 12 hours to formulate a concept, Benavides will spend “roughly 72 hours to complete and install the work” before the show opens with First Thursday and First Friday receptions. Titled “Health – Wealth,” his mixed-media solution to the FL!GHT Art Challenge addresses “the contradiction of medication and the impact on its user.” Free, 7-10pm Thu-Fri, FL!GHT Gallery, 134 Blue Star, (210) 872-2586, facebook.com/flightsa.
