Bunnies and Other Grotesque Icons at Rotunda Gallery, Brooklyn Heights

Grotesque Histories, at the Rotunda Gallery in Brooklyn Heights, presents the work of three artists — Enrique Chagoya, Aaron Johnson, and Miguel Luciano — "who deploy iconographies based in history, both ancient and recent, to address the current world condition." Each artist uses "grotesque visual forms" to make his or her point. (BRIC Arts)

The Rotunda Gallery is on Clinton Street behind the Brooklyn Heights Branch Library, not far from Pierrepont. The show runs through August 8.

Special summer hours: 12 to 6 pm Monday to Thursday, and 10 am to 2 pm on Friday.
