Becky Wareing Steele - Treehouse Prototype
Social Spheres explores the rapidly changing social environments today’s kids experience - from community spaces to virtual worlds. Guest artist Becky Wareing Steele will exhibit fascinating miniature environments alongside DAVA youth artists.
Middle and high school students in DAVA’s Job Training Program created an installation of ceramic roads representing social spaces and media. Computer Art Lab students captured sounds from social spaces and designed digital images of their physical and virtual environments. Students ages 7 to 17 in the DAVA Open Studio created a new community inspired by a workshop with guest artist Becky Wareing Steele on creating miniature spaces and models.
Guest artist Becky Wareing Steele explores the commonalities that exist in our shared experiences through the examination of scale and environment. Her miniature worlds deal with social and utopian communities while connecting with actual people.
DAVA is a nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to strengthen the community through the arts with a primary focus on youth engagement. For more information about our programs, please visit www.davarts.org.
