Julia for Scale

I was looking through old drawings today and forgot that I used Julia for scale on children's museum projects. She's a lot taller now!

Artist Talk!

February 9, 6:30 PM at the Anton Art Center

From the Press Release:

After last year's series of successful talks by Essay'd artists, we are excited to host them again this year at the Anton Art Center!
Kicking off this year's series, Andy Malone will be speaking about his interactive sculptures that often function as games, while conveying deeper themes and making serious topics more approachable. Andy's whimsical machines, board games and drawings have been shown in over thirty exhibitions since 1995, most notably in the Selecti show (2002) at Detroit Artist Market (chosen by Whitney curator Lawrence Rinder). Andy holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Detroit Mercy, and has worked in the exhibit and custom furniture industry for over sixteen years. |
Essay'd is an online writing project by Dennis Alan Nawrocki, Steve Panton, Matthew Piper and friends, that publishes short, illustrated essays about contemporary Detroit artists on a regular basis. If it continues at its current pace, it will reach 100 artists by early 2018 – an unprecedented survey of Detroit art. The first 30 essays were published in print form by Wayne State University Press in August 2016, and a second volume is scheduled for publication in August 2017. |
The Anton Art Center has a mission to enrich and inspire people of all ages through the arts, and has served our community for nearly 50 years through exhibitions, classes, outreach programs and community engagement. As a strong advocate for artists, the Anton Art Center offers numerous opportunities for artists to show and sell their work, from professional gallery and Gift Shop settings to our annual street art fair (ART! Macomb).The Anton Art Center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am until 5pm; admission is free and open to the public. |
Attendance and parking are free of charge, with no advance registration required.

Mindfield Viaduct Map Project

I had an opportunity to help the good folks from Mindfield with an art installation below a viaduct. Mindfield designed a stylized map of Detroit which represents different modes of transportation. I assisted with design development and fabrication drawings. The project is located on Second Ave between Baltimore and Amsterdam in Detroit.
