Some of the most dynamic contemporary artworks marry more than one technical approach. Creative Living Works is hosting an exhibition at Washington Street gallery that challenges the traditional boundaries of art making and involves multiple mediums. National, international and local artists will be displaying work that crosses creative fields in the subject matter, the medium or a combination of both.
The exhibition was on display January 9 -30, 2016 at Washington Street gallery. Miss the show, no problem, walk through virtually with the 3D scan or attend the opening in 360. You could also go the traditional route and see the photo gallery. Read about the show on Scout: SCOUT PICK: Art, Tech And Virtual Reality Meet In “Interdisciplinary” or the feature in the Somerville Times: Creative People are Made Not Born
The Steve Gutenband and The Breakfast Project rocked the gallery for the closing event. See videos here.
