Jason Middlebrook: More Art About Buildings And Food
For the inaugural exhibition in Arthouse's new second floor gallery, New-York based artist Jason Middlebrook will transform detritus from the building renovation into sculpture and functional dining furniture that will evoke both the history of the Jones Center and its longstanding importance as a gathering place for Austin's community. Elaborating upon ideas of community, history, and creativity, Middlebrook will also make a massive drawing that will incorporate family recipes submitted by you! Some of the recipes will also be featured in a communal potluck dinner held at Arthouse on Saturday, November 20, 2010.
For his project, Middlebrook is seeking your family recipes.
To Submit* Email your recipe OR Mail it to Arthouse PO Box 160490 Austin, TX 78716
* All entries must include your name, phone number, and email address. Deadline for submissions is July 31, 2010
