Last week marked SCAD’s second deFINE ART program in both Savannah and Atlanta. Incredible artists, creative professionals and SCAD students, alumni and faculty had the opportunity to present their work. There were so many amazing events! Wish I could have gone to everything. I was able to attend Sarah Lewis’ lecture. It was packed!
The first thing you might notice about Sarah Lewis, other than that she is obviously gorgeous, is that she made Oprah’s 2010 power list, which highlighted visionaries in different professions. Lewis has studied at Harvard and Oxford universities, is getting her PhD from Yale and co-curated a groundbreaking exhibition at SITE Sante Fe that looked at the history and innovations of video art.
One exhibition piece that Lewis showed during her lecture was “The Dissolve,” an incredible drawing-choreography created by Bill T. Jones and the OpenEnded Group. Even via PowerPoint, the piece was beautiful. And Jones sang! It was pretty rad.
