Marvelous Inventions and Illusions
July 15–19, 2019

Week 2 Theme: Let’s revel in artworks that stop us in our tracks and prompt us to wonder: How did the artist do that?! How can gobs of paint placed just so camouflage a surface? What devices can create a sculptural illusion? Let’s take a moment to marvel at stunning mirages and find truth within the illusion!

Inspired by Biennial artists Anoka Faruqee and David Driscoll use their own invented painting process to challenge our perception, creating pulsating depth on a flat surface.  Josephine Halvorson’s towering painted plank is visible only to the keen eye in the Sculpture Park’s wooded grove.

Week 2 Project: Invent machines and schemes for constructing a camouflaged world in the park. Fabricate vignettes to enter into, under, or through for a full-scale trompe l'oeil installation. Will visitors be able to distinguish between the real and replicated trees and stones, and sculptures and their labels?!

Registration opens in January!
