Curator Conversations – Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting

Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting features brightly-colored sculptures created within the pixelated aesthetic of "Pac-Man" and other 8-bit vintage video games. Enjoy a unique opportunity to view the exhibition with the insight of a curator and learn about the development of the exhibit and the surprising intersections between 8-bit pixel graphics and minimalist sculpture. Explore the relationship between the natural world and the artificial world of digital media, and see several new works created to complement and contrast the Gardens’ landscapes.

 

Tour and discuss Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting with a Gardens art curator as your guide.
