On July 29, Museum of Outdoor Arts will open two new exhibitions. The exhibitions will commence with an opening reception from 6 – 9 p.m. at MOA’s indoor gallery headquarters in the Englewood Civic Center, located at 1000 Englewood Pkwy., Englewood. The celebration is open to the public and will include hors d’oeuvres, drinks, music by the local band Winehouse, and complimentary gallery admission.
Inspire. Ignite. Innovate. explores MOA’s 2017 annual theme of past, present, future. Summer Design and Build Emerging Artists examine this topic throughout the MOA indoor galleries. The result is a playful, yet thoughtful, exhibition that makes the viewer ponder this theme. The exhibition was created by 12 undergraduate level emerging artists selected to participate in MOA’s annual summer Design and Build program under the direction of master artist, Cory Gilstrap.
MOA’s Design and Build program operates in two realms, focusing on both temporary outdoor public art and indoor gallery exhibitions. “Emerging artists are provided a theme and collaboratively create a cohesive body of work under the lead of a professional artist in only eight weeks,” said MOA President and Executive Director, Cynthia Madden Leitner. “Participants gain experience in collaboration and in creating commissions and public art.”
This exhibition is free and open to the public through Sept. 22.
