Tony Auth: Melding Museum and City
July 6 – September 4, 2017

Melding Museum and City is a site-specific installation by Baltimore artist and 2017 Evergreen Museum & Library Artist-in-Residence Tony Auth (2014, BFA, interdisciplinary sculture, Maryland Institute College of Art). Auth's work is known for its playful, unprompted style that pays attention to the physical experiences of the surrounding world. In Melding Museum and City, Auth translates pictorial decorations found within the museum for Evergreen's outdoor landscapes, while placing abandoned motorbikes and other symbols of urban unpredictability throughout the lavishly furnished period rooms. He carefully positions these objects in a way that stimulates dialogue between cultural institutions like Evergreen and the cities for which they were established.
