Living Gallery Alert: First Site Specific Project Breaks Ground outside Trahern

APSU’s Living Gallery Program is coming to life! Nashville artists Will Tucker and Matt Christie broke ground on the untitled earthen installation in front the Trahern building this past week, and have been working away in the hopes of completing their project before classes begin.

APSU’s Living Gallery Program will feature vibrant student studios within our Trahern Gallery, incredible visiting artists and lecturers and site specific exhibitions and sculptures across campus for the 2012-2013 school year.

Check out the photos below of Will Tucker and Matt Christie’s project in the works below:

Matt and Will will be on campus to speak about their project and meet with our new Trahern Studio participants in the first week of classes. The next big project to kick off will be the construction of the student studios in the Trahern Gallery starting the week of August 6th.
