Make Art! An Interactive Exhibition Featured at ONU

Jan 8, 2008
Ohio Northern University's gallery season opens its 2008 schedule with "Make Art! An Interactive Exhibition." The exhibition is on display in the Elzay Gallery of Art from Jan. 7-31.

The work represented in this show offers the audience a personalized experience of participating, creating and transforming a work of art. The pieces alter and react depending on the viewer and his or her unique vantage point, giving audience members an interactive encounter.

Artists represented in the show include Barbara Furbish of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Amy Youngs of The Ohio State University, and Bonnie Mitchell and Elaine Lillios of Bowling Green State University.

"We are excited to offer the community this fascinating exhibit, composed of some highly acclaimed artists," said Melissa Eddings, director of galleries at Ohio Northern. "The general public and students are certainly encouraged to visit and play an active role in the displays."

The exhibit features several interactive works, including "Encounters," presented by Mitchell and Lillios, where viewers are immersed in an artificially simulated environment of digital art and reflective music. Also featured is an interactive mirror fashioned by New York artist Daniel Rozin, as well as Youngs' "Digestive Table," where viewers can learn about the ecosystem's digestive system.

Admission to the Elzay Gallery of Art is free and open to the public daily from noon to 5 p.m. For additional information please contact the department of art at (419) 772-2160 or
