Mark Santilucito '13 & Steph Robinson's new sound/video installation Isosteeple will be on display at Stearns Steeple in front of the Mead Art Museum. The piece senses the movement of museum visitors to generate an idiosyncratic sound accompaniment to their movements and the architecture.
“Art in Place / the Place of Art” is a one-year interdisciplinary arts series at Amherst College which explores the myriad relationships that the arts have with place, and how artistic practice helps to shape our senses of place, identity, communities, cultures, institutions, and conversations. It is organized by faculty from the Departments of Art & the History of Art, Music, and Theater & Dance, as well as the Mead Art Museum and the Frost Library. Support has been provided by the Copeland Colloquium, the Amherst Arts Series Fund, and the Dean of the Faculty.
