Movable Mosaics; Interactive Floral Interpretations

MSC Stark Galleries

Arts Council 0 77 Article rating: No rating

Created by students of Horticulture 451 Wm J. McKinley, AIFD, Instructor. Departing from the typical floral interpretation of another work of art, design students in Horticulture 451 were tasked with creating 12” x 12” pavé mosaic designs to interpret only a small section of the associated art piece. This interactive exhibit was created to encourage visitors to actively arrange the mosaic floral designs to best represent the associated art piece, move pieces to suit their personal aesthetics, and challenge them to determine how each mosaic piece fits in the overall interpretation.

Talent, Technology, and Technique

MSC Forsyth Galleries

Arts Council 0 58 Article rating: No rating

Artistic expression is a combination of time and place, training, the surrounding artistic tradition, and an artist’s life experience. But truly great art only happens when a unique talent is able to transcend what is expected when working with their chosen medium. Examining how talented artists used new technologies and incredible techniques to make their mark, this exhibition features more than 60 works that will attempt to answer the question: How did they do that?
