Evidence: Summer Film Classes at DAVA
Evidence features artwork created by DAVA (Downtown Aurora Visual Arts) youth during special summer classes. Evidence opens to the public on Thursday, September 20th from 4 to 7 pm with film screenings, a giant dinosaur sculpture, and a “crime” scene investigation.
Inspired by paleontology, forensics and human life, DAVA students explored traces of life, from fossils to finger prints. Middle and high school Job Training students followed forensic evidence to reconstruct a body in sculpture and solve a “crime” by creating their own forensics lab. Younger students in the Open Studio recreated a Jurassic period diorama with a twelve-foot-long Diplodocus sculpture. This exhibit is part of our theme for 2018: Crosscurrents in the Arts and Sciences.
