The Conceptualizer is a new interactive art exhibit held in the lobby of the Leu Center that invites viewers into the creative process, opening Thursday night.
“This is a chance for students to put themselves in the place of an artist,” said President of Kappa Pi International Honorary Art Fraternity Caitlyn Henneberry. “It’s a facilitator for ideas and inspiration.”
The exhibit has a machine that generates three words for each viewer. The participant then has access to an array of art materials with which to create something inspired by the words they have been given.
The materials include paper, watercolor, colored pencils and oil pastels. Viewers can then choose to have their pieces hung on the wall of the exhibit.
“This exhibit helps people learn how to interact with art,” said Henneberry. “You don’t need to be an expert to participate or express yourself creatively or make art.”
The exhibit will be accessible to people any time during the Leu Center’s open hours through it’s closure September 15. A reception for the exhibit will be held at 4:50 p.m. on Thursday for convocation credit.
