Artists from the metro area and across the nation will all be represented in Light Supply, a new offering opening today at the Museum of Outdoor Arts, which joins other local museums (the spring exhibit Blink! at the DAM and the MCAs current show, Another Victory Over the Sun) in celebrating the use of light in art. Light Supply will naturally have its own personality, as does MOA director Cynthia Madden Leitners private labor of love in the Englewood City Center.
It just seems to be the theme of the year, says the museums Tim Vacca of the exhibit, for which 90 percent of the venues lighting has been blocked to better showcase the glowing sculptures and wall pieces by such artists as Collin Parson, Jen Lewin, Andy Miller, Dorothy and Mel Tanner and others. But, he adds, the overall effect will be inviting: Youll see the glowing lights and be drawn into the gallery. Or outdoors: MOA Wizard-in-Residence Lonnie Hanzon also created a gouache billboard installation with a video element that will light up the museums sculpture garden every evening.
Light Supply continues through next February at the MOA, 1000 Englewood Parkway. For details, go to www.moaonline.org or call 303-806-0444.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 25. Continues through Feb. 25, 2011
