Annual Art Auction and Gala
SAVE THE DATE: The Front Yard at the Center Turns on Forever on Friday, October 18, 2013
Join us at 5:30 pm in the Front Yard at the Burchfield Penney Art Center for a community street party celebrating the unveiling of this one-of-a-kind gallery experience. The festivities include a live musical performance by Tomas Henrique, and then at sunset (approximately 6:28 pm) the trio of projection towers turns on forever to play the weather, reading sensors to create audio and image work by a dynamic array of artists presented throughout the night and beyond.
The opening of the Front Yard—the world’s first permanent, environmentally-responsive, 24/7/365, outdoor new media gallery—features a premier of Brian Milbrand’s Afterglow Arrangements (2013), newly re-mastered pieces by the late Paul Sharits and Hollis Frampton, and works by Steina, Barbara Lattanzi, Meg Knowles & Chris Gallant, and more artists throughout the night. An ever expanding collection of works will be unveiled in the weeks, months, and years that follow.
