“Reaching Out” new public work installed for Art Quest

Art Quest with Maple_CroppedLast week we installed an outdoor piece that was one of nine chosen for  Lansing Art Gallery’s art and history scavenger hunt, up from now through September 1. This even will guide visitors to various downtown Lansing landmarks and original works of art with quizzes and historical tidbits. To participate, be sure to have your smart phone…it’s your guide.

My piece, called “Reaching Out” is installed in…wait, you have to do the tour to find out. The piece displays 10 QR codes that direct visitors to the websites of Lansing artists working in media that would not have otherwise been exhibited at such an event. I’m pleased to showcase Deb Oliva (ceramist), Mike Bass (composer), Jenny Schu (beader), Shawn Misener (writer) and several more, including myself and Dace Koenigsknecht, who fabricated the metal structure of this piece.

I look forward to taking the tour myself. Get more information and start the tour on your phone here. Just click on your level of choice to get to the first piece of art. The tour starts at Lansing City Hall.
