Interactive art exhibit explores passage of time at Clay Center

Posted: Updated:

Touch, feel and connect with art through interactive installations, HDTV LCD monitors masked as paintings that incorporate green screen technology, traditional media and more in the latest exhibit in the Clay Center's art gallery. "All the Time in the World," opens with a free reception from 6-8 p.m. April 13.

Featuring works by Stanford University's Gail Wight, an art professor whose work investigates the history of science, and the University of New Mexico's Mary Tsiongas, a professor of electronic media who explores the impact of humans on nature, this fascinating exhibit exemplifies the influence of science on contemporary art.

And you can learn more about the integration of art and science in two free programs that complement the exhibit. Hear how digital technology is impacting museum education from curator Arif Khan, along with Ryan Hill, director of digital learning programs at the Hirshorn Museum in Washington, D.C., at a lecture on Thursday, May 23. Then, learn about the career of artist Mary Tsiongas as she discusses her works featured in the exhibit on Thursday, June 6. Both programs are at 6 p.m. in the art gallery.

These lectures are being presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations do not necessarily represent those of the West Virginia Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.

"All the Time in the World" is sponsored by the Collectors Club, an organization that supports Clay Center art programs and collection. The exhibit will be on display through August 4. Museum gallery admission is free for museum members or just $6 for children and $7.50 for adults.
