Last evening, John & I had a little time to walk around downtown to see some of the ArtPrize exhibits. One of my favorites - and I could have spent much more time photographing it - was the Lure/Forest exhibit by Beili Liu.
This piece is made of thousands of hand-spiraled coils of red thread hung from the ceiling and is based on the ancient Chinese legend of the red thread. You can read more about it here.
Another piece I photographed last evening was "There is Always a Glass Full of Sky to Soar" by Micaela Vivero which is made of 100 forms made out of copper wire that resemble birds, dolphins and airplanes.
It looks like I must have been drawn to floating art last night! Both of these pieces were at the UICA venues - one on Sheldon and one on Fulton.
