The Derive Art Exhibit ‘Like a Tornado Touching Down, The Dream is Connected to the Dreamer’ opened last week in the Administration Building (AD). According to his faculty page, curator Dr. Greg Metz’s research aims to use “creative intervention to create positive change in my community”.
Artwork installations from Derive Art bring research to working environments. By exploring a variety of topics such as social issues, applications with experimental materials, identity projection, and objectification in new media, the art pieces encourage inhabitants to engage and challenge day-to-day encounters. Through their research, Dr. Metz and his team aim to learn more about the effects and impacts their art installation create, as well as the value their pieces bring to work environments.
The Office of Research invites you to visit the Derive Art Exhibit on the 3rd Floor of the Administration Building (AD) until December, 2017. For additional information, please contact Katrina Saunders via email or at (602) 743-0362.
