From August 26 to October 11, 2013, visit Michelle Word's Vivarium: The Glass Houses of Flora + Fauna in the RCAH's C220 Central Commons Area at Snyder-Phillips Hall. The space is regularly open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
On Sunday, September 8, from 1 to 3 p.m., a reception for Vivarium: The Glass Houses of Flora + Fauna and Mali On Our Minds will be held in the LookOut! Gallery.
Michelle Word is an artist devoted to collecting. Largely composed of handmade and manufactured found materials, her collage + installation work explores contrasts such as gestural and controlled, familiar and unknown, material and illusion, natural and artificial. Vivarium: The Glass Houses of Flora + Fauna examines our increasing artificial relationship to nature by considering the ways we adorn or homes and spaces with nature inspired crafts, patterns, flower arrangements, and manicured landscapes.
