Krasl Art Center to Open ‘Summertime in the Galleries: Come Play!’

The Krasl Art Center (KAC) is pleased to announce Summertime in the Galleries: Come Play! as part of its exhibition programming during the 2018 season.
As the Sculpting Community project is underway outdoors, the Krasl Art Center invites guests of all ages and abilities to participate and enjoy a unique, fun, and playful atmosphere that is far from business-as-usual! Summertime in the Galleries encourages visitors to explore aspects of KAC’s new grounds by participating in collaborative art projects, examining sculpture, and reflecting on themselves and public spaces. KAC’s newly designed grounds will feature a stunning sculpture by world-renowned artist Richard Hunt. Before the sculpture is installed in this Fall, experience its monumental scale and dynamic twists and turns in the galleries via a life-size silhouette. Come investigate and learn about how public sculptures are made and touch sculpture models on display!

Summertime in the Galleries: Come Play! will be on view at the Krasl Art Center June 23 through August 26, 2018.

In the art lab: The Future is Made out of Cardboard

June 30 through August 26, 2018

While the Sculpting Community project is under construction on the KAC grounds this summer, campers will create their own exciting construction project in the artlab gallery. Using cardboard and make-do fasteners, campers will create buildings, structures, and vehicles that benefit communities of the future. Artist Keith Stevens will help campers work collaboratively and individually. Once the camp ends on June 30, visitors to KAC will have the opportunity to add their own futuristic cardboard creation to the collaborative installation.
