The FSU Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to present: Making Now: Open for Exchange as part of 7 Days of Opening Nights.
The artists of Making Now employ ecosystems of making – from on-line communities to collectives to participatory works. The tools of the 21st century artist are likely to involve digital wizardry and the artists are persons of goodwill who embrace global awareness and responsible ecology. They also have finely tuned senses of both humor and the absurd. Making Now will be a surprise—an indefinable exhibition bustling with movement, vivid artworks and the incandescent glow of life.
Guest Curator Carolyn Henne is Chair of the Department of Art at Florida State University and Associate Dean in the College of Fine Arts. She believes most firmly in the unexpected.
