Western Gallery Presents ‘ColorMAD’
Thursday, November 15, 2012
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM (PT)
The Western Gallery will debut its 2012-2013 Season with the exhibition “ColorMAD” from Oct. 1 through Nov. 21.
The famed German writer Goethe described color as dangerous. He suggested that when philosophers saw red, they began to rant and rave as a bull in an arena; they became color mad. Such madness is central to the Western Gallery exhibition.
Patrons will enter ColorMAD through an explosive threshold of color, just the first of many color experiences designed to engage the viewer in this hybrid exhibition. Featuring a range of media from prints and paintings to installation art and video projection, ColorMAD delves into an exploration of the dynamic world of color. The show is designed to encourage the viewer to participate in a variety of activities, such as listening to the colored tones of Machinefabriek, and invites them to become ColorMAD.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Wednesdays when the gallery is open until 8 p.m., and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. For more event details please visit http://westerngallery.wwu.edu/.
