Installation art on the street

Street installations are a form of street art. While conventional street art is done on walls and surfaces street installations use three-dimensional objects set in an urban environment. Like graffiti, it is generally non-permission based and the installation is effectively abandoned by the artist upon completion. Street Installations sometimes have an interactive component (wiki).

Local artist spotlight: Lynelle Forrest

"Lynelle Forrest is a Palm Beach-based artist whose work has percolated in the local underground for years and just now is breaking through to mainstream recognition. Her studio reflects her hyperactive mind, its surfaces strewn with the tools of her trade and her aesthetic preferences, from sculptural files and scrapers and a mini Apple computer to wonderful design books—Miami architecture, Japanese pop culture--and pin-up calendars. Out of this ferment comes work of elegance and depth, with a recurring interest in multiple perspectives—visual, psychological, technological and existential.

[borrowed from the artist's webpage]

Lynelle has donated several of her plaster cars as part of our #Freartfirday give away. She has been doing an art scavenger hunt in Lake Worth for over a year, so if you miss out here on campus; there are lots of chances to snag one of her collector cars there.

You can learn more about her and her work on her website here and on her facebook page here
