Beginning February 23, twenty-eight members of the University of Iowa Studio Art faculty will have current works on view at the Figge. Curated by UIMA Director Sean O’Harrow, the show will include graphic design, 3-D design, sculpture, painting, printmaking, intermedia, ceramics, photography, jewelry and metalwork, drawing and multimedia.
Last night I hosted an event titled Evening at the Colony. Various artists, a musician/architect and a journalist from the US and Europe were asked to send their instructions for an object or task to me via email that the guests in Iowa City were creating or performing throughout the evening on their behalf.
An online documentation of the evening can be accessed at www.eveningathecolony.weebly.com
