Artists Kathy Zienty & Todd Hoover approached museum staff with an idea to create a large, 4 x 10-foot mural that interprets a photograph taken by Earl Vandygriff. The proposal was to engage 40 artists to each create a 12-inch by 12-inch image taken from the photograph. The final artwork will be installed in the ‘spotlight’ gallery along with a key image that indicates all the artists who participated. This celebration of a community of creative minds showcases their innovative approach each in their own respective styles and media.
Meet some of the participating artists on Thursday, August 22 beginning at noon.
This spotlight exhibit will close on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
