"By Land or By Sea"

School 33 Art Center welcomes “By Land or By Sea,” a multi-media installation by Zoe Friedman with musical accompaniment by Stephen Santillan. The installation is on display in the Project Space from Friday, February 12 through Saturday, April 9, 2016.  A free opening reception takes place Friday, February 12, 2016 from 6pm to 9pm.  Light refreshments will be served.  School 33 Art Center is managed by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and is located at 1427 Light Street.  Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 11am to 4pm.

Drawing inspiration from traditional shadow puppets and sculptural mobiles, “By Land or By Sea” is an installation comprised of hand cut paper shapes activated by light, shadow, and motion. Friedman's use of colorful mobiles and playful figures takes on a new dimension in shadow form, illustrating an evolving story across the walls and ceilings of the gallery.  Tigers and birds meander through forests, whales and fish float though the sea, and boats carrying cargo navigate the room, revealing a greater journey and pattern of migration. “By Land or By Sea” explores the connections that humans have to the natural flow of migration, instinctual survival, and the increasing need to adapt to a constantly changing environment.

School 33 Art Center is dedicated to providing opportunities for visual and performing artists through solo and group exhibitions, art classes, hands-on workshops, a Studio Artist Program and special events. A program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, School 33 Art Center is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council and through private contributions.  School 33 Art Center is the proud recipient of a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, which supports fearless and innovative collaborations in the spirit of Robert Rauschenberg.
