The first warm day of spring at the Minneapolis School of Art was the same then as it is today at MCAD. Except, now you can sit on the steps and look at these old pictures on your ipad. Are you out there? Look at more old students on the MCAD Library’s Flickr set.
BOLD ENERGY WESTERN SADDLE
Entering a space I move through often. They are called acres because I own them.
The lake water has been dragged out of the lake. Its volume is prodigious, but not unknowable. The middle body harvested makes a slow and dirty humidifier.
The acres are marked by a fence, and the barbed wire catches parts of deer, sometimes the whole deer. You can’t pass through, but you can climb over, maybe.
Dry traces, rubs, marks, rough patches, knives, and aluminum cans. Dry hooves across from small open water. A knife is hanging as with any room. The cautious body knows this. It moves.
Christine Peterson’s new Library Gallery exhibition BOLD ENERGY WESTERN SADDLE.
Opening reception is on Friday April 26th, at noon.
See you there!
Visiting Artists: Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel
This Thursday, April 25 in Auditorium 150 at 1pm.
The work of internationally known artists Jones and Ginzel has been referred to as sheer magic. Their complex works reveal not only the nuances of site but amplify our place in a greater environment. As exquisitely placed compilations of objects, the works become a place to visit and explore while constantly expanding in experience.
Jones and Ginzel have worked collaboratively since 1985 on many commissioned private and public projects, as well museum and gallery exhibitions internationally. Current major works include the Visual Arts Complex at the University of Colorado - Boulder, the Hoboken Ferry Terminal in New Jersey, the airports of Kansas City and Tampa, the Tiber River in Rome, and public buildings in Orlando, Chicago, Utah, and St. Louis.
Happy Earth Day MCADers!
Today is a day of celebration and climate-problem awareness raising. Stop by MCAD Library and flip through this awesome book with lots of beautiful and moving photographs of our Fragile Earth and its rapidly changing landscape.
We also have a wealth of books on sustainability, green design, green art practices, and lots more.
