When folks read headlines about floods, famines and other natural disasters around the world, they cope in many different ways. Some write it off to climate change and head to the bar with friends. Others circle passages in sacred texts or watch 2012 doomsday documentaries and set dates for their end-of-the-world get-togethers. John Frost and Ryder Richards, however, embrace the chaos and make art. Inspired by the tumultuous nature of our ever-changing information age, Frost and Richards, as the artist collective TBA, debut a month-long installation at Richland College's Brazos Gallery, 12800 Abrams Road (located in the Crockett Building, Room C-140). For TBA's Precious Cargo, an 8-foot crate loaded with "salvaged art" will be transformed into "a response to the uncertainties of nature." The installation is on display through September 2. Admission is free, and gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, visit richlandcollege.edu/gallery.
Mondays-Fridays. Starts: Aug. 4. Continues through Sept. 2, 2011
