ArtPrize entry ‘Didactic Revolvers’ on display at KCC

Those who missed seeing Kellogg Community College’s ArtPrize entry in Grand Rapids this fall can see it on display in Battle Creek through Friday, Dec. 13, at the College’s Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center.

The collaborative sculptural work, titled “Didactic Revolvers,” will be free and open to the public to see from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in the Davidson Center’s Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Gallery.

The artwork, which was funded by the KCC Foundation, was created by KCC art instructor Vicki VanAmeyden and 10 students from her ART 295: Museum Field Study course this past summer. The course included travel to several regional art museums, and the sculpture incorporates black and white photography from class travels as a visual record of their shared time of experiencing art in the Midwest.

KCC students who joined VanAmeyden in the project include Natalie Cope, Adam Corey, Jeremy Gray, Madelyn Houghton, Kayla McCarthy, Taylor McCoy, Morgan Paul, Stephen Richmond, Liz Stafford and Nadine Weisser.

Accompanying “Didactic Revolvers” during its exhibition at KCC are several 16- by 20-inch photographic prints featuring images taken by the ART 295 students during their course.
