Light Spectrum by Antonia A Perez 04/15/2017-08/06/2017
Light Spectrum is a sculpture that draws the viewer’s attention to the science of light and color. It is constructed from found everyday materials that have been transformed from discards into art. The use of the lampshade frame as the support for the crocheted plastic mesh of the sculpture references its former use in shading electric light as it now is the means of filtering the natural light through the colors of the plastic.
Opening Reception: 04/15, 3:00PM-5:00PM
The Light Spectrum and associated programs are made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the historic house Trust’s Contemporary Art Partnerships program, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York Community Trust.
