Grand Central Arts Forum, the support group for Grand Central Art Center (GCAC) is revitalizing the hit exhibition, 100 Artists See Satan, a survey of contemporary artists and their interpretation of the supreme demon. Unlike the original exhibition, this iteration of the collection will be presented as a fundraiser, with works available for sale to the public. All proceeds will benefit future GCAC programs and exhibitions. An exclusive preview will be held Saturday, June 26 from 6-7pm with the public reception scheduled from 7-10pm. On July 3 from 7-10pm GCAC will host another reception to coincide with Downtown Santa Ana's First Saturday Arts Walk. The exhibition will remain on display through August 15, 2010.
100 Artists See Satan was originally organized by GCAC in response to another exhibition, 100 Artists See God, curated by John Baldessari and Meg Cranston for Independent Curators Inc. New York. The two shows exhibited simultaneously in 2004, Satan at GCAC and God at Laguna Art Museum, and gained notable attention from the public and media.
This second installation of the exhibit will offer the public a chance to purchase works from acclaimed artists. To further raise funds, Grammy Award winning graphic and packaging designer, Hugh Brown has been commissioned to design Satan's credit card, limited edition of 666. This collector's item is available only at the GCAC bookstore for $50. Cardholder's benefits include a discount on select merchandise in the GCAC Sales Gallery as well as the opportunity to win an artwork from the exhibition.

As a graduate with a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Miso’s work is presented through a variety of mediums including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and etchings. Her art is often stimulated by her interpretation of the known and her experimentation with the unknown. Fascinated with ecocatastrophe, biology and the science of evolution, Miso has sought to fabricate a world in which strange creatures, born of her making, exist and thrive among us. These homunculi are organic representations of the term that provides her name.
Miso currently works and resides in Los Angeles, California, and creates fine art photography under her given name, Karen Hsiao.
