25 Sq. inches The Faces of the Permanent Collection
October 1, 2014 - April 5, 2015
As one of the most scrutinized and depicted subjects, the human face is perhaps the most important theme in the history of art. The
face has perpetually captivated and inspired artists and artisans. From ancient Egypt to the Renaissance, from photography to Pop
Art, man's fascination with the face is eternal. Drawn from the permanent collection of the Frost Art Museum. Curated by Klaudio
Rodríguez. For more info click here
Deep Blue by Javier Velasco
Spanish multi-media artist has been commissioned to do a site-specific work in the atrium of the Frost Art Museum. He used fused glass to create beautiful works that are allegories to the ephemeral, and speak to the fragility of nature and the environmental concerns of today.
OTHER THINGS TO SEE
The Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery
The Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery allows visitors to experience interactive activities designed to educate and entertain. This state-of-the-art Discovery Gallery consists of 13 stations including the computer-based display, Picture Yourself, where a camera takes an image of a person’s face and reproduces it on a touch screen. Participants can then trace the contours of the face with their fingers and print the finished product. The Kenan-Flagler Discovery Gallery is possible due to the support of the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust. The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust was established in 1965 from the estate of William Rand Kenan, Jr., who was born in Wilmington in 1872 and graduated from UNC in 1894. Kenan was a scientist, chemical and mechanical engineer, business executive, dairy farmer and philanthropist.
