Temple of Vacuous Confidence
Earlier this year, ACT Theatre approached SOIL about commissioning SOIL artists to create window installations for their sidewalk windows. I thought, "So, you'll PAY us to make art?!" That was a radical concept for me to understand, but after giving it some thought, I agreed that it made some sense. Not having really made much sculpture before, I was excited to give it a whirl. More info on the SOIL website here. Each window represented a decade of American culture since the 1950's. I had the 1980's... Materialism, rabid consumerism, glitz-y exteriors without much content, Lamborghinis, speedboats, hot pink, etc. On display through August 30 at ACT Theatre.
