Loud Color Luminous Sound: Parasol B @ The Carrack
Jun 21 @ 11:00 am – Jun 24 @ 5:00 pm

Memo from the desk of Curator, Kerry Crocker:

Please join me in June for “Loud Color Luminous Sound”, an exhibit of interactive, colorful, noise-making skulpturs and assemblages which were rescued from imminent demise in the parallel timeline which we designate as Timethread “B”. Until recently these artwerks had been misplaced in storage since the time they were transported to my timethread, in late 1971. The artist signed these werks using the name “Parasol”. For the exhibit of these artefakts we will attribute the pieces to Parasol “B”. The artist states through the werk, clearly, that art should be touched, interacted with, played with, to be fully experienced.

Come visit to experience these werks and learn more about their history.

As a part of the Loud Color Luminous Sound exhibit, please join me and NCSU Libraries for a workshop where you can learn some basic creative electronics and make a light-up pin…. using LEDs and conductive tape. No skills necessary. No pre-registration required. Drop in for about 30 minutes any time between 2pm and 5pm to make your pin. Workshop will be led by Adam Rogers of the NCSU Libraries Makerspace.

All supplies will be generously provided by NCSU Libraries so that you can make your light-up pin for free!
