Wednesday NIght Photo Post: Rice University Gallery

Last few days have been spent working at Rice U.'s art gallery. Ever since seeing the Kirsten Hassenfeld show (pictures here,) I had hopes of working the gallery space. And so I have on a few recent occasions.

The latest show is the gallery's summer show. While the venue is closed, an installation is chosen that can be viewed through the glass front of the exhibition space. This summer, artist Mark Fox was invited to show his installation piece "Dust". A visual catalog of almost his material possessions, the show is a massive collection of drawn items pinned to the wall. An expansive beauty of a show, and I got to work alongside the artist.

Rice does no favors for the art-loving public wishing to visit, as paid parking is the only option. That being said this a show that will be up for the summer months and well worth the couple of bucks that will be charged (on debit or credit card.)

Parking in West U and walking onto campus is free, and we all need the exercise.
