The Center aims to activate underutilized spaces, engage community, and to create self-sustaining opportunities in alternative spaces.
Frimaire is the Color of Adolescent Sunset is a series of site-specific installations of both local and national artists and educators who explore discoveries between experimentation and academic practice with lighting, sets, sculpture, and performance. The playfulness of the title is based on the immersive light and sound installations of Boston-based artist, Jane Cassidy.
When inanimate objects reflect cultural concerns, historical narratives, and playful humor, it becomes clear that artists project their impressions of history into figurative works to better understand contemporary society. The sculptures, puppets, and installations in Personify engage new audiences and ask for participation. Art-making activities will be available for gallery visitors and tour groups in an immersive installation by Jim Hammond, marionettes will be on view and engaged with for the opening of Pablo Cano’s work, and an installation about the life and inventions of Nikola Tesla by Jeanne Jaffe will hang delicately from the Immersive Gallery ceiling.
