MCAD@MIA 2015: Microsafari
Ever wanted to go on a safari? Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) student Mercedes Knapp’s “Microsafari” invites visitors on an imaginative expedition through MIA’s diverse collection of art from around the world. Knapp has placed nine installations throughout the galleries, next to the artworks that have inspired their creation. These bright forms made from Sculpey clay will surprise and delight children of all ages.
Please join us in the Impressionism Gallery, G355, on March 26, 5pm for an introduction and tour of Mercedes Knapp’s “Microsafari.”
If you spot one these creatures in the museum, snap a shot, then tag us on Instagram @artsmia and Twitter @artsmia using #ArtSafariMIA. With each tag you’ll be entered in a lottery to take home your favorite creature. Let your journey begin!
“Microsafari” will be on view March 26–June 21, 2015, as part of MCAD@MIA.
