Selected Previous Exhibits

BLOB by Chad Zemel (Interactive video portrait)

From the artist's statement: "Blob strives to use HD video touch screen technology to directly connect historic play with clay (through history painting design) to a modern screen-centered, disconnected audience. I look to bring true action to media and a return to primitive free experimentation as the audience and I tap into the world of Blob." Photo taken from making of BLOB

Fragmented Light by Patricia Van Dalen

Patricia Van Dalen (1955), a Venezuelan-born artist, has long been interested in abstraction, color, and the intervention of large architectural spaces. Fragmented Light (2011), created specifically for UGA’s Miller Learning Center, is a composition made of brightly-colored adhesive tapes that transform the walls between the MLC’s third and fourth floors. The art work accompanies students as they climb up and down the stairs, lending chromatic vibrancy to a place of study. The installation was created with the help of student and staff volunteers from UGA and the Athens community. It was on view between January 21st and May 21st, 2011.
