Art and Architecture: Metaphors in Space
The 2017-2019 Artmobile exhibition invites viewers to investigate the relationship between art and architecture. Images in the exhibition enable discussions of the ways in which architectural spaces impact our institutions, communities, emotional and physical well being, and how artists interpret these impacts. The exhibition features classical renderings, conceptual interpretations and expressive portrayals of the architecture that shapes our lives.
Artmobile Educator Erica Ramsey will provide guided viewings and workshops inspired by the collection.
