Monday, Oct. 28, 2013, was a very big day: it marked the first time the Moss Arts Center was open to the public.
Patrons and art enthusiasts filled the center while they explored the building, enjoyed snacks and beverages from catering services, and took in the sights and sounds during the opening receptions for our three inaugural visual art exhibitions by Jennifer Steinkamp, Leo Villareal, and Joan Grossman.
Steinkamp’s work, Madame Curie, 2011, fills an entire wall of the Ruth C. Horton Gallery with glowing, flowing images of flowers, which Steinkamp created entirely out of code. The piece was inspired by scientist and Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie, and each of the flowers represented in the piece were found in Curie’s garden. Steinkamp continues to exhibit now through Sunday, Nov. 24.
The artistic expression through technology continued upstairs in the Miles C. Horton, Jr. Gallery with Leo Villareal’s Digital Sublime. Four wall sculptures of LED- and computer-driven imagery illuminate the upper gallery. You can check out Villareal’s work through Sunday, Dec. 15.
Last but not least, the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology commissioned visiting School of Performing Arts and Cinema Program faculty member Joan Grossman to create her multi-screen video installation This edge I have to jump. Grossman’s work will remain on exhibition through Sunday, Nov. 24.
Here are some more photos from opening night.
