Event description
Join Donald Black Jr., David Jurca, and Ocean Young in a conversation about the use of augmented reality in public spaces.

About this event

Augmented Reality (AR) superimposes virtual objects and sound onto real-world environments, and delivers an interactive art experience. AR experiences only need a smartphone or tablet. Art viewed in AR suggests a new way of perceiving what is both there and not there, spoken and not spoken, and in our present and our past. The Sculpture Center is pleased to present Donald Black Jr., David Jurca, and Ocean Young in a conversation about the use of augmented reality in public spaces and in the current exhibit Crossroads: Still We Rise.

This event will be held at The Sculpture Center, 1834 E 123 St, Cleveland, OH 44106

About Donald Black, Jr. All it takes is for someone to drive through some of the roughest parts of Cleveland to witness the beauty and impact of Donald Black, Jr.’s photography. Black’s work is on the ground alongside the people who are from the same environment that he represents. And when you hear his story, with all of its rugged and rough edges, you’ll understand why it’s so impressive that he was able to maintain the focus needed to avoid falling into the traps that his environment steadily situated and promoted. Here, there are no stories of happy endings, white picket fences, silver spoons or long lists of impressive schools, exhibitions and awards. Instituting himself and tabulating all of his accomplishments isn’t as impressive as knowing how serious and meaningful art is to the person who is doing it to stay alive.

Organizer The Sculpture Center

Organizer of Augmented Applications in Public Spaces

Since its founding in 1989 by Cleveland artist David E. Davis and Bernice S, The Sculpture Center (TSC) has provided early-career sculptors, originally from Ohio and now from the greater region, with the opportunity to create work for a solo exhibition. This keystone program, called Revealed, is an open call to artists in the first ten years of their career working in three-dimensional forms, mixed media, installation, expanded media, relational aesthetics, and performance. Revealed has advanced the careers of sculptors by leveraging gallery representation, direct grant funding, university positions, tenure, and most importantly, the creation of work without commercial constraints. TSC contextualizes the four to six annual Revealed artists with exhibitions of rigorous work by mid-career sculptors. This vital exploration of contemporary art practices enriches opportunities not available otherwise to early career artists and improves the region’s cultural, historical, and aesthetic landscape.

In 2000 TSC founded the Ohio Outdoor Sculpture (OOS) database following its participation in Save Outdoor Sculpture!. OOS is the largest online collection of images, historical data and condition information of a growing list of 1,500 publicly accessible outdoor sculptures in Ohio. OOS encourages communities to recognize, appreciate, and preserve their outdoor public sculpture.

TSC supports the community of sculptors in our region through the formation of SculptureX (SX). Established in 2010 SX is an annual symposium that develops closer connections among teaching institutions, faculty, and students of visual arts programs of sculpture in our region. As the nexus of SX, TSC impacts networking, artistic dialogue and career growth for the member organizations.

Through a year-round program of exhibitions, talks, and educational events, TSC is a creative oasis and meeting ground where ideas, risk-taking, and artistic dialogue connect artists, communities and audiences locally and internationally.
