First Look: The Awesome Vinyl Bags of “The Dallas Collective” for the 2013 Texas Biennial
Open Studio: Every Person is a Special Kind of Artist, with Baggage will be on view beginning September 5 (San Antonio) and September 14 (Marfa) through November 9, 2013
Earlier this year, Meadows Art Professor Michael Corris worked together with a group of students from the B.F.A. program to complete a commission. The group, which was dubbed the “The Dallas Collective,” created 50 vinyl carry bags and a 10-minute behind-the-scenes video. The collaborative, commissioned work was for the 2013 Texas Biennial, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this fall.
Those bags will be on display in Marfa, Texas September 9-November 9 at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum in San Antonio and September 14-November 9 at the Ballroom Marfa in Marfa, Texas. Before that, we thought we’d take a sneak peek at the creations the team made. Courtesy Michael Corris, take a look at the (above) slide show of the team-worked bags. Really cool stuff. By the way—each bag is on sale, and proceeds go to art programs for schoolchildren in Marfa and San Antonio.
