Intergalactic Dreaming artist Michael Giancristiano partners with the Veterans Museum of San Diego to unite in a community-based art collaborative, PROJECT THOR.
Giancristiano, a Los Angeles-based sculpture artist, elevates the ordinary material of plywood through a labor-intensive process of deconstruction and manipulation. The topography of his large-scale plywood wall reliefs resemble the surface of the moon, pitted with craters. Created through a collaborative exercise with participants from diverse backgrounds, the work is the result of a tremendous amount of kinetic energy, intended to mirror the process by which asteroid collisions form the moon’s irregular surface.
The artist is using the same techniques as described above in PROJECT THOR, with the goal of utilizing negative energy and force to create a positive experience and beautiful artwork. The partners plan to work with a range of San Diegians from, troubled adolescents, to bankers, soldiers, protesters, prisoners, and even politicians. A portion of the sales of the artwork will be invested back into the community.
Please join Veterans Museum of San Diego artist-in-residence Michael Giancristiano in the Memorial Garden (by B24 Bomber Sculpture) for a day of community fun and art therapy as we bang on plywood to create moon inspired art.
