Interactive Art

I just returned from a trip to Columbus, OH.  One of my favorite towns!  Yesterday I was fortunate enough to attend a contemporary art exhibit at Hopkins Hall Gallery of Urban Arts Space called Open This End featuring artwork by Andy Warhol among others.  I found it serendipitously and went on a whim.  I’m so glad I did!

The art itself was interactive, often in 3-D or containing some audiovisual component.  But this exhibit went a step further and constructed a framed background where viewers can create their own selfie and thus become a piece of art, even if for only one moment in time.  Making a personal statement is encouraged.  As an artist, I love this concept!  And I just had to participate in the fun.  The results are posted here.  Enjoy the mini art show by yours truly 🙂

If you have a chance, I highly recommend stopping by the exhibit.  But hurry!  It’s only on display until tomorrow.  Check here for details.
