Design & Build-Elements & Isotopes, Design & Build Alumni and Short Circuit by Michele Brower
On August 2nd, 2014 MOA will open its newest exhibition, Elements and Isotopes featuring the collaborative works of MOA's Summer 2014 Design and Build interns. This multi-media exhibition will include various installations inspired by the metaphoric concept of the isotope and how it applies to the interconnectedness of humans, ideas and the planet. Through the lens of this theme the participants have created a body of work in response to the premise that "we are all isotopes of the human element".
Since 1991, MOA's Design and Build program for emerging artists has provided an opportunity for artists, students and creative minds to express their creativity in collaborative public art projects. Assisted by professional artists in residence, Design and Build interns participate in all elements of the public art process from concept and design to construction and installation of a professional museum-caliber exhibition. The program generates temporary public art and offers lessons in teamwork, problem solving, aesthetic and technical considerations.
Also opening on August 3rd is Short Circuit, a sculptural installation by Denver artist Michele Brower in MOA's Gallery C, Design and Build Alumni Show, featuring the works of local artists and Design and Build alumni Maeve Eichelberger, Kelly M. Jones, and Kai Mazurzcyk in the MOA Atrium, and Jelly Mind Fields, a projection installation by Lael Siler in the MOA White Box Gallery.
The opening reception for Elements and Isotopes, Short Circuit, Design and Build,
Alumni Show, and Jelly Mind Fields will be August 2nd from 6 PM - 9 PM at MOA's indoor gallery on the 2nd floor of the Englewood Civic Center. All four installations will be on exhibit through September 27th, 2014. For more information please visit the MOA website at www.moaonline.org or call (303) 806-0444.
