Tunde Olaniran and The Mosaic Youth Theatre is Bringing The Concept of The Third Paradise to Life

Have you ever heard of the Third Paradise? This concept was created by an Italian artist named
Michelangelo Pistoletto to symbolize the reconciliation of the world that we have created with the natural world that was here long before technology tainted it. To represent this, the artist revised the infinity symbol and gave us a new way to look at the idea of infinity and continuation. He wants to convey the idea that “together we make the world a paradise”. His art and his theories are thought-provoking and inspiring. Two words that I would also use to describe Tunde Olaniran.

Flint-based artist Tunde is teaming up with the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit to bring a performance of Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Il Terzo Paradiso (The Third Paradise) to life this Friday, September 27 at 7 p.m. They will be activating Detroit's historic Fisher Building's atrium for a one-hour recreation that will bring this work to life. The details of this event are very limited, but we know that if Tunde is involved it will not only be magical, but most likely it will be unlike anything else we have ever seen before.

This performance is being sponsored by The Cranbrook Museum and Art Gallery and it is free to attend. This is a one time only chance to see art come to life while seeing some of Michigan's best performers in a whole new light.
