"Goodnight" by Liz Zacharia opening Nov 3rd
Tinges Commons announces the opening of “Goodnight” by Liz Zacharia
Baltimore, MD, October 19, 2009 - Tinges Commons will present its third public art installation, “Goodnight”, by Liz Zacharia, from November 3 - December 12, 2009 at the southeast corner of 33rd and Frisby Streets in Waverly. The exhibition’s interactive geodesic dome and modified Tinges Commons Kiosk will invite viewers to explore a hidden universe of light and reflection.
Liz Zacharia creates spaces that invite people to participate in the revelation of phenomenon. This participation reminds the viewer of their active role in the process of shaping the piece. Goodnight offers two apertures for participation, crawling into the geodesic dome and peering into the kiosk. Within the geodesic dome, the viewer will find a space to contemplate a starry night sky that otherwise might be invisible to them in our light polluted skies. Within the kiosk the viewer will see a fantastical interior of reflection and kinetic light.
Tinges Commons is a community garden and collaborative, contemporary public art space at the southeast corner of Frisby and 33rd Streets in Waverly, Baltimore. An opening reception for Goodnight is planned for Tuesday, November 3, 2009, from 5-7pm.
Tinges Commons is funded by the Greater Homewood Community Corporation, the Maryland Cooperative Extension, the Maryland State Arts Council, Mayor Sheila Dixon and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and The Arts.
