Opening Reception | Pulse Dome Project: Art & Design by Don ZanFagna

Friday, October 19, 2012
The Halsey Institute, 161 Calhoun Street

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston School of the Arts has organized a major traveling exhibition of works by Don ZanFagna. ZanFagna is an artist, architect, and designer whose lifework both defies established categories and challenges rote notions of the role of the artist in society. Now in his eighties, ZanFagna retired near Charleston, South Carolina. His family, at present, is uncovering a vast trove of writings, drawings, photographs, artworks, collages, models, and ephemera that the artist amassed over his long work life, much of which will be seen in this exhibition. This exhibition will present a series of works by Don ZanFagna that explicate the futuristic concept of “growing your own house.” Conceived in the 1970s, the artist imagined a home created, constructed, and maintained by all-organic processes and in perfect harmony with nature. The exhibition is curated by Mark Sloan, director and senior curator at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, College of Charleston School of the Arts.

The opening reception on Friday October 19, 5pm to 7pm will be open to the public and include complimentary refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres. Pulse Dome Project: Art & Design by Don ZanFagna will be on display at the Halsey Institute from October 19 – December 8, 2012 and will travel nationally after its inaugural presentation at the Halsey Institute.

The exhibition and publication Pulse Dome Project: Art & Design by Don ZanFagna has been made possible by generous grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and The Bishop Family Foundation.
