The Center for Creativity and the Arts (CCA) at Fresno State will host renowned sculptor Jonathan Brilliant to kick off its 2012 - 2013 theme “Consumption and Sustainability.” Brilliant will be artist in residence on the Fresno State campus, September 7 – 20, in the Henry Madden Library’s Leon S. Peters Ellipse Gallery. The public is encouraged to observe the artist at work, Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.
Mr. Brilliant will construct a large, site-specific sculpture titled Woven & Stacked that will remain on view until September 30.
Brilliant’s massive structures woven out of 30,000 to 50,000 coffee sticks have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Without the use of glue, the works rely on tension and compression for stability.
