A large piece of art is
being installed on the outside of the Contemporary Arts Center downtown.
The museum, located at 6th
and Walnut, is bringing in work from a renowned artist. The artist J.R. is
known for his large format outdoor installations called ‘Pastings' where the
image is literally glued to an outdoor surface, such as the side of a building
or the surface of a street.
The new exhibit at the
Center for Contemporary Art, called Inside Out, will be slightly different.
"His work is primarily outside," says Pedro
Alonzo, Guest Curator of the exhibition. "We worked for three years to develop an
exhibition to bring the work into the museum."
The new exhibit will be at
the Contemporary Arts Center until February.
