Herberger Institute art students celebrate the merger of the practical, visionary

March 28, 2012

Creators, makers, and performers invite the public to experience the merger of the practical and the visionary from 6 to 10 p.m., April 6, in an evening including experimental art, mechanisms, music, and dance at the Icehouse in Downtown Phoenix.

Called Apparatus Sculptoris, "the sculptor's studio" after a constellation discovered in the 18th century, the event is a collaborative exhibit organized by ASU students from the schools of Art, Dance and Arts, Media + Engineering in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts that celebrates the interdisciplinary potential of the arts.

The exhibition represents the intersection of the rational and the radical. Through a variety of strategies, such as illumination, fabrication, installation, and new media, artists create both traditional and adventurous works of art. TheĀ  School of Dance presents three original dance performances, rotating throughout the evening. In addition, makers and inventors in Arts, Media + Engineering will display interactive systems and cutting edge technologies.

The Icehouse is a raw, industrial space, making it a perfect venue for art of a highly imaginative nature. This exhibition not only highlights the range of three-dimensional work in the School of Art, but also the diversity of approaches within the Herberger Institute.

The Icehouse is located in the heart of Downtown Phoenix at 429 W. Jackson St. For more information contact Mary Neubauer at
