Gallery talk by Thomas Zickuhr
February 27, 6:00 PM to 6:40 PM | Pleasant T. Rowland Gallery
Thomas Zickuhr (Lecturer, School of Education: Art) discusses his piece, Balance.
Balance / n.d.
This free-standing neon piece presents the word “balance” in blue neon. Incorporating an antique microphone stand, this work is both a reference to sound balancing, and a play on the idea of balance as a design concept when conceiving and presenting works of art.
