FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Traveling Contemporary Art Exhibition Opens Saturday at the Neville Museum!
GREEN BAY, WI May 15, 2023 – BLOW UP II: Inflatable Contemporary Art explores the medium of inflatable art with figurative, conceptual, and abstract imagery. These large-scale inflatable sculptures, conceived by nine artists and art collectives, connote fun and whimsy, are familiar yet strange, and challenge the definition of art. Here, in an unusual feat, artists use air as an active tool in their work to subvert our perspective and surprise us.
Holding our attention with wonderment and delight, BLOW UP II creates a spectacular, immersive environment that inspires deeper contemplation. By harnessing the power of air, the ideas and possibilities in artmaking seem endless, and creativity takes flight. Curated by Carrie Lederer and organized by The Bedford Gallery: Lesher Center for the Arts.
