Art Omi: Architecture Tour
A guided tour of works by architects in the Sculpture & Architecture Park. Tour includes Magnetic Z, by Cameron Wu, and Sensory Journey, by Wendy Evans Joseph. Both architects will be present to discuss their work. Pre-registration is required; the tour is free and includes refreshments.
Cameron Wu’s architectural practice involves the research and deployment of developable surface geometries. Magnetic Z comprises two primary surfaces which exhibit opposing formal properties—curved vs. planar, high resolution vs. low resolution, continuous vs. discrete. These surfaces also define a figural promenade of ramp and stairs, which acts as a spatial hinge in the landscape, providing new vantages of the visitor’s surroundings, a sense of movement and play, and a respite from the elements.
Wendy Evans Joseph is the founder of Studio Joseph. She leads the design for each of the firm’s projects and has completed a diverse array of commercial, institutional, residential, and cultural projects with a strong emphasis on public and community involvement. Referring to local history, Sensory Journey incorporates Shaker beliefs, valuing rural traditions of spirituality, utility, and respect for the land.
Join us on Saturday mornings for safe exploration of the Sculpture & Architecture Park and art-making for kids ages 5-12. Weekly workshops host a maximum of twelve children, with a minimum of two teachers. This program will be held almost entirely outdoors with art-making occurring under the open-air Education Pavilions.
