Exhibition open: SHIFT: Jongil Ma, Christopher Smith, Corban Walker

The David Owsley Museum of Art at Ball State University presents the special exhibition SHIFT: Jongil Ma, Christopher Smith, Corban Walker, which explores works through the eyes of three artists, and how we see and experience space and time as well as physical and emotional realities. The exhibition will be open through Sunday, May 7.

The three artists all come together to create one experiential masterpiece in regard to physical reality. Jongil Ma changes our focus from objects to emotions through conceptual explorations of containment and chaos, freedom and restriction, randomness and order. Christopher Smith makes his viewers move and mentally reconsider their physical realities. Smith offers a mesmerizing display of light and color by superimposing video images of paint and pigmented fluids flowing over glass. Corban Walker creates sculptures in relation to his own proportions, challenging the viewer to see the world through relations to the body and physical dimension or limitation that imposes upon us.



Meditation in the Museum this Friday

Meditation allows you to detach from the materialistic necessities of life. The David Owsley Museum of Art hosts guided mediation almost every Friday. This week's guided meditation, led by the Dr. George Wolfe, will help you enter a state of non-desire. Attend our session on Friday, Feb. 24, at 3:30 PM at the Owsley Asian Art Gallery, David Owsley Museum of Art.

*Faculty and staff: You can receive one point towards the Working Well incentive program for attending Meditation in the Museum.
