June 5 - August 31, 2014

Taking advantage of the Main Gallery's unique architecture and expansive space, the Center invited five artists who work in varying media, size and scope to create one-of-a-kind, site-specific art installations that will become individual micro-environments and encourage viewers to experience the space in a new way.

 

Participating artists/installations:
Nicole Banowetz - Erupture: My Microscopic Life-cycle
Katie Caron - Drosscapes
Sophia Dixon Dillo - Forming Light Installation

This creative vision will ultimately transform and evolve to create a one-of-a-kind space in the western region by devoting a dedicated area to showcase modern and contemporary sculptures. In placing art, it changes the landscape of Arvada and brings the programming of the Arvada Center galleries inside, out.
