Interactive Art History Exhibit at CF Webber Gallery
Feb. 21, 2014
“Art History 101: Icons of Western Art” at the College of Central Florida Webber Gallery, 3001 S.W. College Road, runs through March 28.
This interactive exhibit is designed to celebrate art history by helping visitors see well-known works from a different perspective.
In the exhibit, the most beloved paintings and sculptures spanning nearly 2,500 years of Western Civilization are recreated as gold line drawings. Visitors may complete an “open-book quiz” using art history books in the gallery.
“Looking is required, cheating is permitted, and collaboration is encouraged,” said artist Sandra Bowden.
Collectively, the College of Central Florida now displays more than 500 works of art at its Ocala and Citrus campuses and Levy and Hampton centers, not including works at the Appleton Museum of Art.
There is no fee to visit the exhibit. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information call 352-873-5809.
