Draw on the walls at the Koffler Gallery!


So, as I mentioned in the last post, I visited the Koffler Gallery last weekend. It's pretty far out of the way, but it is transit-accessible, and the current shows are worth checking out. "My Square Foot" is a "collaborative drawing installation," a lot like a comics jam. Four artists have begun drawing on the walls; visitors are encouraged to contribute. I particularly liked Jon Sasaki's contribution. He's painted a wide stripe of blackboard paint around one of the rooms, and plotted out the stars on it in glow-in-the-dark paint; you're invited to connect the dots in new ways, and invent your own constellations. That's mine above. I don't think those are actually the Pleiades, and I realized afterwards that a Pleiadosaur ought to have flippers rather than legs, but you get the idea.

If you go, go outside & have a look at Simon Frank's installation Imprint also. Frank poured sawdust on the early spring grass in the shape of trees, leaving shadowy tree-ghosts when the sawdust was swept away a few weeks later.


Square Foot runs till July 15, and Imprint to September 9, so you have plenty of time.
