Tysons Corner Center has found a new partner in its efforts to bring art into its halls of commerce.
The mall’s newest installations were created by five resident artists from the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton as part of a new collaboration with the nonprofit, Tysons Corner Center announced last week.
The works, including a mural that was painted on-site in real time, will remain on display on the mall’s second level near Macy’s through early June. An opening reception will be held on today (Tuesday) from 6-8 p.m.
Here’s more on the exhibition from Tysons Corner Center:
Resident artists from the Workhouse: Marni Maree, Britt Conley, Joan Hutten and Dean McIntyre were all chosen to display selected pieces on Tysons’ Art wall. This exhibit features a wide range of visual art by artists of a diverse background. These artists were specially selected to showcase diversity in watercolor, infrared photography, ink, and fiber art. [Upper level, Macy’s Court, next to Kung Fu Tea]
On the Upper Level of Macy’s Court (next to LOFT), Fernando Osorio created a live original mural painting, called “Pathways.” Fernando’s educational background in art and design, influences his style in modern art by capturing the “realms of spirituality.” During the center hours, from Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., shoppers witnessed his work created in real-time, and are now able to enjoy his completed work.
Tysons Corner Center’s team-up with the Workhouse builds off an ongoing partnership with ArtsFairfax that has produced two installations showcasing local artists so far.
