Exhibit: Black • White • Color • Light: The Sun as Art | Stamford, CT

Date/Time

Mar 22, 2014 to May 26, 2014

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

March 22 - May 26, 9:00am – 5:00pm

Colossal black charcoal drawings on white vellum capture the intricate details of two of our most precious natural resources: bison and trees. Artist Rick Shaefer, from Fairfield, juxtaposes the majesty and frailty of nature in his life-size renditions. Twenty stunning, full-color, high-resolution images of the star with which we live demonstrate the color spectrum of light. QR codes allow visitors to scan and learn more about the dramatic images captured by NASA scientists  An interactive light box allows visitors to mix color shadows with body movement to experience the range of color in the light spectrum. The exhibition asks the viewer to consider the different ways color is created and how light influences what we see in black and white.
