In Place art exhibit
November 14, 2020 - December 24, 2020
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 24, 2020
“In Place” pairs the work of two first-place winners in MarinMOCA’s 2019 juried shows: Sonya Hammons and Susan Shipley. Each artist explores the concept of “place” in distinct ways, and the work was completed while the artists themselves sheltered in place during the 2020 COVID-19 crisis.
Susan Shipley has painted maps of American cities to reveal the profound effect that geography has on individuals’ life prospects. Many of her works are based on the Census Bureau’s Opportunity Atlas project, which relates outcomes in adulthood to the neighborhoods where children grew up. These vivid images invite us to reflect on causes of economic disparity as well as the importance of accurate census data.
Sonya Hammons created fiber sculptures that encase objects salvaged from industrial operations in Sausalito’s Marinship neighborhood in handmade wool felt. The resulting works create comforting, fire-and-water-resistant shelters for pieces of the working waterfront. Sonya’s outdoor fiber installation will greet visitors with an interactive, indoor-outdoor art experience that invites us to observe and participate in the ‘everyday architecture’ that often goes unnoticed in daily life.
