The wonderful Sara Lee Burd (who was just named Executive Director at Seed Space) interviewed me about Modular Art Pods for the June edition of Nashville Arts. Check it out here.
Modular Art Pods takes place at OZ Arts Nashville during their OZ Art Fest, June 21 through 25 with a special Thursday Night Things performance June 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. Learn more at ModularArtPods.com.
I’m really happy to announce Modular Art Pods happening Saturday, February 7th during Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston 6-10 p.m. at abrasiveMedia inside Houston Station (438 Houston Street, Nashville, TN). MAPs is the open-source community art tunnel that I’ve been working on for over a year, and it features 30 individually-curated pods. None of this could have happened without the hard work and creativity of the participating artists, which include:
Alison Rinner and Becky Matthews
Ava Marie Puckett
Courtney Adair Johnson
Dig Deep Light Show
Dylan Ethier and Molly Lahym
Matt Fox and Ben Clark
Megan Kelley and Stephen Zerne
Sarah McDonald and Tyler Blankenship
Modular Art Pods will be unlike other art exhibitions you’ve attended. You could call it an “art haunted house,” and like haunted houses, you will have to wait in line to get in. So allow time for waiting. And wear comfortable clothes for crawling. If you are unable to crawl through, we also have a backlot walking tour that lets you peer in on the crawlers and see the behind-the-scenes magic.
MAPs isn’t the only show happening in the Wedgewood/Houston neighborhood Saturday night. Also check out Tom Shinness, Tony Gerber and Kirby Shelstad performing at Noteable Blends(also inside Houston Station) at 8p.m. and lots of other gallery openings, including Andrew O’Brien’s Talking Talking House at Seed Space, Fort Houston’s 3rd Birthday Bonanza, Ariel Lavery at The Packing Plant, the opening of Cumberland Gallery in Track One, and lots more. Also, MAPs participant Kayla Saito has a solo show at the WAG Gallery in the Arcade downtown. Joe Nolan has the details on these events and more at the Nashville Scene’s Crawl Guide.
Some of you who know me may have heard on this strange art exhibit idea I’ve been working on called Modular Art Pods. Basically, it’s a linear art tunnel comprised of individually-curated 4′ cubes. Each micro-gallery holds only one person, so you can confront the art without the distractions of free wine and conversation.
We just launched the MAPs site and announced the call for artists. If you’re interested in making a pod, apply here. The exhibition happens February 7th at abrasiveMedia, a wonderful new art center in Wedgewood/Houston.
