The Art of the Timepiece February 7th- April 6, 2014 Main, Garage and Badami Galleries
In this unprecedented, gallery-wide exhibit, the Kimball Art Center will explore the history of our incessant journey to progressively master time, as well as the art and science of making and adorning timepieces.
Since the dawn of civilization, humans have created timekeeping devices of ever-increasing precision, which have had a profound impact on the framework of life and society. From the rudimentary, ancient Egyptian “shadow clocks” to the modern, ultra-accurate atomic clocks, this exhibition traces mankind’s unrelenting quest for excellence by creating instruments of staggering complexity and beauty – devices which marry both the disciplines of art and science.
For the first time ever, visitors will discover the expansive collection of Karol Renau’s extraordinary timepieces as well as his intimate photography of the hidden art within. Discover exceptional watches on loan from O.C. Tanner, as well as the timepiece-based jewelry of artists Krysia Renau and Stacy Sheers.
The Kimball Art Center is open 7 days a week and admission is free of charge.
A.R.T.S. school tours of this highly educational exhibit are available free of charge. For information, please contact email@example.com.
