Viridis Art Collective is please to participate in CALL TO INSTALL at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. We will re-create our site-specific installation of The Mending Tree which weaves together our experiences of and hopes for our natural world onto a single tree. The public is invited to contribute a wish to this on-going project.
Visual artists in The Palm Beaches are not limited to creating art that hangs on the wall. They also think outside the frame to create work that is designed for a specific space. This art-making process has been prevalent in the art world since the mid-1970s. Proposals for site-specific installations have been received from professional artists in the area and vetted for the Council's main gallery space. Artists on display: Birds are Nice, Katelyn Spinelli, Nicole Galluccio and the Viridis Art Collective. Themes touched on are environmental, nostalgic and conceptual.
RSVP for Member's Preview: June 2, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. by calling Debbie Calabria (561) 472-3341
