Monochromatic Sculpture and Spatial Installation at De la Cruz Collection

Monochromatic Sculpture and Spatial Installation at De la Cruz CollectionSaturday, August 11, 7-10pm – De la Cruz Collection, 23 NE 41 Street, Miami Design District

During the summer the de la Cruz Collection hosted a series of artist-led workshops providing local art students and teachers the opportunity to learn about different ways of relating sculpture to space. For Monochromatic Sculpture and Spatial Installation, students, along with Miami-based artist Cara Despain, created a site-specific installation inside the project room at the collection. Limited to a monochromatic palette, participants chose and dipped found objects in black paint, created textures using black fabric, cellophane, paper, and different paint finishes to produce a variety of sculptural compositions that alter the existing space.
