Art in the Open 2014

AiO is a juried art event celebrating the way artists interact with their urban environment. The selected group of artists are invited to take their studio practice outside to produce work in the open, create a temporary presentation, and interact with visitors. It took place May 16-18 along the Schuylkill Banks. This was the second time I participated. I made spray paintings on canvas mimicking natural patterns and textures with an unnatural medium, then installed them on an existing free-standing wall that was once the base of a bridge. My goal was to accent the wall with the size, color, and patterns of the paintings in order to have the wall itself become an art object.
