The Metal Museum is pleased to announce Metal in Motion, an exhibition featuring ten artists whose work involves moving parts and celebrates kinetic possibilities. The show will be on display MAY 7 - AUG. 20 with a closing reception and gallery talk on Sunday, AUG. 20, 12PM - 2PM.
The work featured in Metal in Motion includes hand operated sculpture, quirky devices, and movable jewelry, inviting the viewer to interact with the art. Several pieces have a practical function and assist the user in everyday activities. Other works are humorous and offer time for playing and entertaining our mechanical curiosity.
"By viewing and interacting with the work, I seek to make us look at ourselves and ponder the underlying reasons for our seemingly casual gestures," says exhibiting artist, Jennifer Crupi.
Visitors will be permitted to interact with select pieces in the exhibition while video components will demonstrate the use and movement of more delicate works of art.
