Play Ball

June 25, 2010

The MAT Art Education Department is presenting “Keep Your Eye on the Ball,” a new exhibition of work created in the program’s summer Advanced Studio Art course. Faculty member Michael Filan, who teaches the course and is curator of the exhibition, presented a deceptively simple assignment: use a plastic toy ball as the starting point for a work of art.

The resulting works—with themes ranging from commentary on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico to depictions of pregnancy and motherhood—are collected in “Keep Your Eye on the Ball,” on view at the Westside Gallery, 133/141 West 21st Street, June 26 – July 24; there will be a reception for the artists on Friday, July 9, 4 – 6pm.
