The Japanese Friendship Garden (JFG) in Balboa Park is honored to work with San Diego State University's Richard Keely for the next exhibit in the Inamori Pavilion! Keely has invited invited 50 artists from an array of disciplines: painters, sculptors, designers, metalworkers, whittlers, ceramicist, jewelers, dabblers, film makers, photographers and a host of others to make a fish that will be displayed on a 2’ x 2’ matte black tile that will be laid out in a grid on the floor of JFG's Inamori Pavilion. What Keely is hoping to achieve by giving 50 talented artist the vague, yet open ended prompt to “make a fish” is an installation that embodies the unique qualities of the minds and hands of each individual artist in relation to the space their work will occupy. The work will be presented in an unorthodox grid on the floor that will activate the environment and create a curious dynamic between the individual pieces, the viewer, the Inamori Pavilion, and the installation as a whole.
