Light artist Redl to speak
at Toledo Museum of Art
TOLEDO - Light installation artist Erwin Redl will present a free artist talk Feb. 22 at 6 p.m. at the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion.
Redl is best known for draping New York City's Whitney Museum in red and blue lights for the 2002 Whitney Biennial,
Redl is the fifth artist to participate in the Toledo Museum of Art's Guest Artist Pavilion Project. The program invites one artist per year to visit.
Austrian-born Redl, who now lives and works in Bowling Green, works with tiny light-emitting diodes mounted in a grid to play with viewers' perceptions of space and architecture.
Toledo project finds place
in journal's awards annual
TOLEDO - The You Are Here Toledo project has been honored by HOW Magazine.
The magazine's March International Design Awards Annual bestows an "outstanding" rating on the project which included 100 three-foot wide "dots" placed at historic and other significant locations throughout the city of Toledo.
Each dot featured original artwork or design by a different local artist. Each dot featured a unique QR code that could be scanned through the app and provided information about the artists and the artwork and the significance of the location.
Residents were encouraged to participate in a scavenger hunt to find the dots.
Jenn Stucker, of the Bowling Green State University faculty, was the art director for the project, and a number of BGSU artists completed dots.
"You Are here" was one of only 20 of 242 in the annual projects to receive an outstanding rating. More than 1,000 projects were submitted for consideration.
