BLOW UP: Inflatable Contemporary Art
April 26 - June 21, 2015
Inflatable structures connote fun and whimsy, and challenge our everyday, feet-on-the-ground perspective. With BLOW UP, the Bedford taps into our fascination with these structures and connects audiences to works that have broad appeal. BLOW UP was funded with a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Curriculum Connection: Experience the concept of inflatable sculpture where scale is used to affect the way we perceive works of art.
Art Project: Create your own whimsical inflatable artwork and explore airborne sculpture.
BLOW UP media sponsor: Hi-Fructose Magazine
Botanica: All Things Plant Life
July 12 – September 6, 2015
From 16th Century Flemish painters, to Cézanne and the Post Impressionists, the color and variety found in plant life, as well as the potent symbolism, has made it a popular subject for still-lifes and artist studies. Botanica asks artists to draw on these themes to create artwork that explores how plant life can be represented in a diverse reach of media.
