Craig Colorusso: Moon Pod
On View: January 1–1, 2019
Craig Colorusso is a Arkansas-based artist whose works intersect sound, light, and sculpture. Winner of the 2014 ArtFields® prize, Colorusso has presented his inventive, participatory works across a range of sites and festivals over the past decade, after decades as a professional performing musician. Colorusso is creating a new work as part of his MOON PHASES series—Moon Pod—for a one-year period of installation (January - December, 2018). The sculpture is a sound art work that will play music based on the fullness of the moon, beginning in silence with the New Moon and slowly filling with sonic density, adding notes until at its fullest during the Full Moon. The artist's Sun Boxes will also be installed in varying configurations across the landscape surrounding the Ent Center for the Arts over the one year period, inviting cross-disciplinary responses from a range of UCCS and community artists, dancers, performers, musicians, and yoginis.
AWOL: Art WithOut Limits launched in 2008, featuring international, national and regional artists and collectives manifesting site-specific temporary projects outside the confines of the gallery walls with accompanying artistic residencies. Past programs include social practice projects, public sculpture, multi-disciplinary performances, and happenings across a wide range of venues. Creating community through shared experiences with art is a guiding goal of this program.
