During his Salina Art Center residency, Brooklyn-based artist Jason Peters created art with everyday objects: plastic buckets, tires, chairs, and surprise materials found in Salina industry and agribusiness. These then became modules of larger forms relating organically to the Art Center’s exhibi- tion space. Peter’s sculptures are often defined as dystopic, futuristic, spectacular, and just plain beautiful. They undulate, twist, and climb up and over each other, seemingly with their own energy.
Organized by the Salina Art Center. Open And as Pointed as Possible and Jason Peter ’s SAC residency were made possible in part by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and the R.C. Kemper Charitable Trust, UMB Bank, n.a. Corporate Trustee.
