Soundscapes, Science Museum Oklahoma is excited to announce their newest art exhibition opening February 9.

 

 

OKLAHOMA CITY – Science Museum Oklahoma, (SMO), and the Satellite Galleries are excited to announce Soundscapes, with an opening reception Saturday, February 9, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in the Satellite Galleries. This exhibition features the art of 11 established artists: Christie Owen, Beatriz Mayorca, Christie Hackler, Jerrod Smith, Phil Danner, Dustin Ragland, Chris Clark, Balam Soto, Dylan Bradway, Josh Heilaman and Kyle Caldwell. This evening reception is free and open to the public. The show will run until August 2nd, 2013.

 

These 11 artists, trained in the visual arts, have come out of their comfort zone to present their sculptural work for Soundscapes, based on the distinct relationship between the visual and aural domains of art and perception for Soundscapes. All were given the task to create a sound sculpture that can produce sound or vice versa, sound that can create sculptural form or mass. These works mesh with the science of auditory perception as it exists simultaneously as spatial and temporal, and as action and object.

 

Artists were chosen by curator Scott Henderson for their display of innovative thought, and their willingness to branch out of their artistic norms. Alongside their sculptures will be accompanying artwork that will relate to the central focus piece. None of the works on display have been seen by the public, and were created solely for this exhibition. Soundscapes is an all-ages show that will offer educational, hands-on experiences for the viewer.

 

“Music can be a force that promotes creativity and inspiration,” said Dylan Bradway, Soundscapes Artist. “As an artist, I have always been more energized and productive while listening to music.”

 

“I have never been more excited for an art opening!” said Scott Henderson, Galleries Director, SMO. “I have been working with the artists and seeing the plans and pictures but have not been able to interact, touch, see, and hear the finished pieces. This is a show I feel very proud to present, because of the challenge given and the dedication of each artist involved to follow through and create something that exemplifies science, art, and wonder.”
