“Call to Install” exhibition opens June 3
Four Palm Beach County artists will display new site-specific works at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County starting on June 3, in an exhibition entitled “Call to Install.” Through July 30, visitors to the Cultural Council’s main gallery in Lake Worth will experience the creativity of art that has been made especially for the space.
Nichole M. Hickey, manager of artist services at the Cultural Council, said, “Visual artists in The Palm Beaches are not limited to just creating art that hangs on the walls. They also think outside the frame to create site-specific artwork &emdash; an art-making process that has been prevalent in the art world since the mid-1970s. The Cultural Council’s unique gallery space challenged artists to create work that is specifically molded to the layout and architecture of the building.”
Proposals for site-specific installations were received from professional artists in the area and vetted for the Council’s main gallery space. Artists include Birds are Nice, Katelyn Spinelli, Nicole Galluccio, and the Viridis Collective. Environmental, nostalgic and conceptual themes will be represented.
“Call to Install” is free and open to the public beginning June 3. Admission to the preview party on Thursday, June 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. is free for Cultural Council members and $20 for non-members. You can reserve your ticket online at palmbeachculture.com/eventsh/call-to-install/, by calling (561) 472-3341 or emailing email@example.com.
