May 5th @ 5pm, the UNCG Art Department is celebrating the opening of its new space for contemporary arts and community with a celebration of the work of late professor, Andrew Dunnill. The solo exhibition will follow the theme of the Dunnalia festival and showcase a selection of Andy’s sculpture and works on paper.
A celebration of Andy’s life will begin at about 5:30–this will be an informal event with an opportunity to remember Andy with stories and memories as the spirit moves any of you. Andy’s father and sister will be in attendance as will a number of his friends who are traveling from around the country to be here.
The space, named GPS (Greensboro Public Space), will act as a visible and accessible platform for art, public dialogue, and education through the hosting of exhibitions, workshops, screenings, and performances in the Downtown Greensboro & South Elm Street cultural district. There is no better way to inaugurate GPS than with an exhibition of one of the Art Department’s most beloved professor’s work.
Doors open at 5pm. All are welcome!
Directions: After turning from S Elm St onto W Lewis St, continue straight past the former location of The Forge on the left until you reach the parking lot. Take a slight left towards the very end of the road, where The Anvil Building is located. There is no outlet down this road and turning around may be difficult. Parking is available in the pay-to-park lot adjacent to W Lewis St, or in limited amounts down W Lewis and S Elm. See the FB event HERE
