MARILYN WALIGORE: WASTE & WANT
November 3 through December 8, 2017
Artist’s Reception: November 3 (Friday), 2017, 3 – 5 p.m.
The Educational Art Gallery at Cedar Valley College is pleased to present the exhibition, Marilyn Waligore: Waste & Want. The artist collects discarded aluminum waste to create sculptural forms, which ultimately exist only in a photographic record. Waligore’s images of these constructions urge the viewer to reflect on the consumption of material goods, and their ultimate resting place, despoiling our environment.
Professor of Aesthetic Studies and Photography at the University of Texas at Dallas, Marilyn Waligore has directed the photography program for the school since 1989. Her photographs and online media projects have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Thailand, the New York Digital Salon, SIGGRAPH, The School of Visual Arts, the Houston Center for Photography, and The Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, as well as other locations. Her artwork is included in museum collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The museum of Fine Arts in Houston.
