Students in UW-Green Bay Prof. Alison Stehlik’s “Intermediate Sculpture” class were asked to create a site-specific installation in the spirit of a contemporary installation artist.
The students researched various artists to use as a “mentor” artist — someone they would emulate for the purpose of this project, either in terms of artistic process and/or aesthetic or cultural/social motivations. Stehlik says most of the pieces will be up until the end of the semester (but forewarns that that bubble-wrapped elevator could be running out of pop potential soon!)
The students and the locations of the art are:
Gena Selby, Flag, Mary Ann Cofrin Hall
Mike Arendt, Political Dissonance, airlock of Environmental Science building
Natalie Vann, Untitled Book Heads, Rosewood Cafe, Wood Hall
Amanda Urmanski, Untitled Installation with VHS tape, Studio Arts Cafeteria
Olivia McDonald, Bubblevator, Studio Arts Elevator
