The motion paintings of West Virginia native and noted artist James Edward Davis will be the focus of the next Art Up Close! at the Museum Education Center, on Wednesday March 20th.
Presented by Jeffrey Moser, Assistant Professor of Interactive Design in the School of Art and Design, College of Creative Arts, the program begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Museum Education Center Grand Hall, which is located near the corner of Patteson Drive and Morrill Way at the Evansdale Campus North Entrance.
Moser’s presentation, “Film, Trains and the Works of James Edward Davis”, will discuss Davis’ cubist motion paintings and his experimental films from the 1950’s. Tracing the historical connections between motion pictures and cubism, Moser will explore how burgeoning transportation and film technologies influenced art making in the early 20th Century.
The event is free and open to the public.
