UW-RF Sets 12th Annual Outdoor Art Exhibit

The Annual Outdoor Art Installation, sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-River Falls art department, embarks upon its 12th year with public viewing of outdoor art designs lasting a brief three days, from Oct. 15-17.

Students and faculty will create outdoor works designed to highlight a specific site on campus. The art may be in the form of a colorful quilt made entirely of natural materials, a clothesline of photographs, or larger than life dancing pine needle figures.

Originality is the theme as guest artists and local artists display their creations. Each artist strives to explore new ways of expression, using unique tools, as well as working with others to leave a memorable impression on viewers.

This year's guest artist is John Garrett. Garrett holds a master's degree in design from the University of California-Los Angeles and has taught for Scripps College and UCLA. Using his expertise in the application of textile technologies and imagery to various materials, in which he has been working with for the past 25 years, Garrett will work with students on a project of his design as an installation.

Thirty-eight installations contributed to last year's Annual Outdoor Installation. Students will be constructing installations on Oct. 13 -14. The finished works can be viewed from Oct. 15-17. All who view the works are asked to act with respect toward the artist and not to damage or alter his or her installations.

Site maps identifying individual installations are located at Gallery 101 or outside the art department office, Room 172, both located in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building.
