Hanging Kinetic Art Show

Regional Juried Exhibition
JANUARY 24-MARCH 22, 2015

Green Spring Gardens is hosting a kinetic art show, Let It Move, January 24-March 22. This juried art show will feature the hanging kinetic works of emerging artists and art students.

Kinetic art is an interactive form of art with components that are designed to be set in motion by an outside force such as wind, water, or the observer. More than just mobiles, this is a hanging fine art exhibit that engages the viewer into wondering "how is it made?" and "what can it do?"

Eligibility

This exhibition is open to all emerging artists and art students.
