Constructing Creativity: Art’s the Spark Summer Show
Exhibition dates: August 5 – September 18

Through interactive tours of the Museum’s collection, this program gives those with memory impairment, or any neurological impairment, and their caregiver’s an expressive outlet. Participants engage in a studio activity following their tour. This show features work created by participants in response to the color and construction of sculpture, the final products were then photographed to capture the effective illusions of assembled space. In response to Dawn Roe’s Mountainfield Study, which is featured in the Florida Prize 2016, artists used mixed materials to investigate assemblage and landscape.
