Retired FSU Art Professor George Blakely’s most complex and ambitious installation will be exhibited in Lake City, South Carolina at ArtFields, April 21-29. He has been working on this project since 2009 and to date has used over fifty thousand postcards and over ten miles of tape. The installation at the R.O.B., 235 Church Street, took nine days to complete. The $120,000 in cash prizes are determined by a professional panel and public vote of those who travel to Lake City and register to vote by texting with the artist’s ID number.
Blakely will be in Lake City through the duration of the event and can meet people at the installation site if contacted by phone (850-385-4974) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). He will be selling samples of his work at Makers Market April 22nd and 23rd, and will give an artist talk on-site at 6:00PM on April 22nd.
We hope you can find the time to travel to see George and his installation.
