Join Art Center Sarasota, Fuzion Dance Artists and artist Craig Colorusso for a dance performance inspired by the melodious sounds of Colorusso’s “Sun Boxes” on the rooftop level of the Palm Avenue Parking Garage in Sarasota.
Open to the public!
“Sun Boxes” is a portable outdoor sound installation from artist Craig Colorusso, presented jointly by Art Center Sarasota and the city of Sarasota. The installation is comprised of 20 solar-powered speaker boxes that emit sound of the artist’s composition when in the sunlight. Serenely melodious, the boxes invite viewers to linger in a space, often lying down to enjoy the peace of the space that the boxes create.
Sun Boxes will make a tour of Sarasota on two different occasions. The first tour is November 4 –7, 2013, with appearances at the Palm Avenue garage, public beaches, and city parks. The second tour will take place January 1 – 3, 2014, with stops at city parks and public beaches. The artist will be onsite at every installation.
A reception, with the artist, is November 7, 5-7 p.m., at Art Center Sarasota.
