ArtDesk Conversation: Janet Echelman

This event is no longer on sale.

Sunday July 7

12:00 PM  –  1:00 PM

Join this year’s featured installation artist, Janet Echelman, as she discusses her latest sculpture, 1.8 Green Mountain Falls, in Gazebo Lake Park. 

Janet Echelman sculpts at the scale of buildings and city blocks. Her work defies categorization, intersecting Sculpture, Architecture, Urban Design, Material Science, Structural & Aeronautical Engineering, and Computer Science. Echelman’s art transforms with wind and light, and shifts from being an object you look at, into an experience you can get lost in.

This year, the Green Box Arts Festival welcomes 1.8 Green Mountain Falls, which refers to the length of time measured in microseconds that the earth’s day was shortened as a result of a physical event, the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami which hit Japan with devastating effects. The forms in the sculpture were inspired by data sets of the Tsunami wave heights across the Pacific Ocean.

A free lunch will be provided at all ArtDesk Conversations!

12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
