Moving Space at Bountiful/Davis Art Center
May 14 – June 18
No, Bountiful/Davis Art Center is not moving but the current exhibit ‘Moving Space’ is. The three dimensional exhibit creates a different use of the space as there are only a few wall pieces in the sculptural exhibit. With dramatic lighting and placement of the art, a mood is created that draws you into a quiet yet moving space. According to Mike Call, a sculptor who assisted with the exhibit, the title of the exhibit denotes that the three dimensional works actually move the space and invite you to walk around each piece to contemplate its full impact. Many of the patrons who came to the opening reception on May 14 felt an inexplicable emotional response to the exhibit. It is well worth a careful look.
