Introducing: Fortuna Rising, a 21-week, online, multimedia art experience, born in a way from a 2005 Sala Diaz exhibition hosted by Hills Snyder and reviewed by yours truly. If Snyder’s intro to this art experiment, at left, leaves you hungry for more gentle, cynicism-dissolving mind games, you’re in luck — every Wednesday for the next four months, Grundy will unveil a new digital treat at a stencil, a video, a perfect cocktail recipe, a screensaver, etc.

If you’re perplexed, don’t overthink it. Just come along for the ride; visit whenever you feel blue or stymied or stressed-out, and click on the easily spotted Fortuna logo for a little glass-half-full diversion.

“Each week offers a rabbit hole with a punchline,” promises Fortuna architect Gordy Grundy. “As the weeks progress, a philosophy begins to emerge. ... Get lucky! Consider yourself lucky. Luck is what you make of it.”
