Art exhibit takes over University Heights Center

March 14th, 2012 · No Comments

Step inside the University Heights Center these days and you’ll see an unusual art exhibit. Breaking away from the traditional collection of framed art hung from the walls, artist Julia Hensley created one giant collage that moves along the walls and throughout the building.

The installation, called HEIGHTEN, is part of a larger program of the center; University Heights Arts Gallery. The center is home to a wide variety of cultural, musical, and performing arts and nonprofit corporations.

While the exhibit opened last month, University Heights will host a second opening/ open house on Friday March 16 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Visitors may take a tour of the facilities, view the living art installation display and be a part of the collaborative piece. Refreshments will be available. Event festivities will include local/regional wines may be featured & light appetizers, Live Music & demonstrations of the artists’ & centers’ activities. $5 donation per glass (suggested donation).
