SPRINGBOARD/Colab’s August Wilson Center Exhibition To Open
Springboard and Colab Architecture are pleased to announce the the opening of the exhibition they designed for the August Wilson Center for African American Culture. The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, September 11, 2010.
Entitled ‘In My Father’s House,’ the August Wilson Center’s inaugural art exhibition invites visitors to ‘discover ways in which African Americans collect and preserve their culture. …This mixed-media exhibition uses the visual art and material culture of people of African descent, from heirlooms and fine art to political memorabilia and digital media, to explore how the past influences the present, helping to weave a community together from generation to generation.”
Springboard’s Principal, Paul Rosenblatt AIA and Colab’s Principal, Felecia Davis, collaborated with five teams of curators to develop a variety of collecting scenarios. Each of these scenarios became a room in a metaphoric house. Springboard and Colab’s design creates a dreamlike, theatrical setting for the exhibition.
