Illuminate & Glow - Scratch & Shape

Interactive Community Art Experience

November 18, 2021 - January 20, 2022

Inviting the community to an Interactive Community Art Experience!

Scratch & Shape Community Mural and Illuminate & Glow Community Art Installation are two interactive activity spaces you will be be able to experience on the second level of the Art Gallery. We often choose installation art for community art projects because it’s a contemporary art form that emphasizes a sensory experience and is rich in material choices easy for everyone to manipulate.

 

Inspired by PASSION PROJECT-BULLFIGHT! & THE BIBLE, Scratch & Shape is a large- scale artwork co-created by all community members who contribute to this evolving mural by drawing, writing or collaging a poster about something they are passionate about.

Setting aside the notion of appraising art for its commercial value or artistic skill, community art embraces the process of artists connecting with other artists through their art. The strength of community art is that everyone is invited to share their unique voice and creativity to then be experienced by all. This art form focuses on involving community members through the process of art making.

Community art often emphasizes the process of art making rather than the artistic result. It is an art form everyone can participate in, which is why often easily accessible media are chosen.

Capturing the essence of the Northern Lights, Illuminate & Glow is an evolving community art installation co-created by all community members who contribute their artworks to this large-scale installation.
