Consider the periodic table; the 7 elements of art; the power of nature; the Titans; raw materials or elementary and early education as jumping off points for the 2023 High Art theme of ELEMENTAL.  

Elemental – at its core – describes the building blocks of life from human connections to the basics of all existing matter – earth, air, fire and water.  As the world twists and turns around us, these essential principles hold an energy that can ground us in times of chaos and unrest.  Discover what makes up the human form or the forest, explore how the primaries are the main colors from which all colors are created, and even ponder what it means to be in one’s natural element.  These concepts serve as inspiration for teams of students to create one large-scale art installation that activates and energizes their allotted space in the Attleboro Arts Museum’s gallery. 

Schools will define their unique response to “elemental” and explore how it will shape their concept and art installation. For inspiration look to artists through the ages such as Patrick Dougherty, Yayoi Kusama, Andy Goldsworthy, Alma Woodsey Thomas, Vincent van Gogh, Katsushika Hokusai, Megan Geckler and Ifeoma U. Anyaeji.

What is installation art? Installation art uses any material invention to modify the way a space is experienced and can be either temporary or permanent.  Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces. The genre incorporates a broad range of materials, including but not limited to huge, three-dimensional painting/murals, sculpture, poems, and new media such as video, sound, and performance art.
