Painting with Fabric: Installing Lunar Bower
Installation began Monday for the latest addition to the Intersections series, Lee Boroson‘s Lunar Bower. The work is on view in the museum’s café through May 27, 2012.
“The whole thing was an experiment, to see if I could create the same sense of light as the Ryder paintings . . . it’s like hanging a painting in a frame made out of [the café’s] architecture.”—Lee Boroson
In honor of tonight’s full moon, a preview of the next Intersections project, opening May 26. Lee Boroson’s Lunar Bower responds to moonscapes in the permanent collection. It is made of silk and felt and will suspend (illuminated) from the ceiling of the cafe.
