TICKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!
An out of this world experience awaits you at Messengers & Messages, an interactive visual art exhibition featuring sculpture and visual work created by artist Royal Brown.
The Messengers are a fleet of spaceships crafted from regular household objects that people tend to throw away without a second thought. The Messages are a series of hieroglyphic wall hangings that are meant to be decoded by the viewer. Combined in this unique immersive art experience, they are meant to evoke a sense of curiosity and surprise. For you, the viewer, it is seeing these ships that resemble dragons, then recognizing the very familiar objects they are made of (and, for those who accept the challenge, to decipher the messages that come from a starship’s perspective and speak to your humanity).
Messengers & Messages opening reception will take place on Friday, September 20th, from 6-10pm. The reception will feature mystic vendors, food and drink, and a chance to win prizes through decoding the hieroglyphic messages featured in the exhibition. Admission is $10, or $15 with a translation booklet.
Stay tuned for a full list of vendors!
The exhibition will remain on display through September 28th.
All spaceships will be available for purchase and range from $45-$5,000.
This project is made possible with funds from the decentralization program, a regrant program of the New York state Council of the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo & The New York State Legislature, administered by the Arts Center of the Capital Region.
