Artist-in-Residence - Brooks Dierdorff
Exhibition on March 11 until April 30
Sculpture House hours: Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (except holidays)
The Sculpture House is currently hosting a new art installation by UCF adjunct professor of photography Brooks Dierdorff. This unusual art experience encourages guests to interact with photography in a different way than they are used to. The exhibition shines a light on the Rights of Nature Movement happening across the country and internationally where nature is being granted rights to help protect our environment. Find out more about this interesting movement in the Sculpture House from now until April 30. Stop by the Art House to have a guided tour of the Sculpture House Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Dierdorff is an Associate Professor of Photography at the University Central Florida and an artist exploring the ways media like photography and video shape our cultural imagination of environmental collapse. His work includes a range of methodologies such as photo-based sculpture, installation, video, appropriating images from commercial and archival sources, and environmental grief therapy. This expanded photographic practice often explores new ways of seeing – staging encounters with photographs that push against the interpretation of a photograph as an objective document to be passively received, offering instead a sensorial and emotive relationship with photographs.

Sculpture Exhibit at Lake Concord Park
Colorful "Totem" sculptures by the late Dorothy Gillespie are currently on display at Lake Concord Park. These works of art were originally shown at the Rockefeller Center in New York City. Additionally, her artwork will be on display as part of the Experience Contemporary Exhibit from March -August 2022.
About the Artist: Dorothy Gillespie (1920-2012) lived an unconventional and path-breaking life as an artist, painter, sculptor, pioneer, activist, mentor, writer, educator, and lecturer. Today her large volume of work is housed in museums, public spaces, and private collections in the United States and abroad. The goal of the Dorothy M. Gillespie Foundation is to paint a rich portrait of Gillespie and her world. Her life story continues to offer inspiration to female artists today by asking them to re-visit and re-imagine what it means for women to be successful artists on their own terms.
