Artist-In-Residence Workshop Series: Artist Talk and presentation of artwork
You are invited to join Georgia Tech Library Artist-in-Residence, Deanna Sirlin, on April 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for a reception and artist talk to celebrate her new Crosland Tower site work: Watermark.
Watermark addresses the most important issue of the 21st century -- climate change -- through color, transparency and composition influenced by the exhibition 50 Years of Science Fiction at Georgia Tech.
Sirlin is an artist best known for her gestural paintings and monumental installations. In her paintings, she explores how texture and composition affect color relationships. Through her installations, she dramatically alters physical environments, using color and light to challenge how viewers interact with space.
