Garden of Industry at LASM

Saturday, October 12, 2013 - Sunday, January 05, 2014

Details

Coming to the Louisiana Art & Science Museum: the most recent installation by sculptors (and husband-and-wife artists) Cynthia Giachetti and Ben Diller explores the paradox between the ideals of nature and industry—concepts fundamental to the American dream. Giachetti’s organic, sinuous ceramic forms stand in stark contrast to Diller’s super-sized emblems fabricated out of wood. Working together yet independently, their collaborative work draws upon the myriad associations suggested by the juxtapositions of their very different sculptural forms. Tuesdays—Sundays at 100 South River Road. (225) 344-5272 or lasm.org.
