Blow Up II: Inflatable Contemporary Art
October 29 – January 9, 2022
BLOW UP II: Inflatable Contemporary Art explores the medium of inflatable art with imagery that is figurative, conceptual, and abstract. These large-scale inflatable sculptures, conceived by ten artists and art collectives from around the world, connote fun and whimsy, are familiar yet strange and challenge the definition of art. Here, in an unusual feat, artists use air as an active tool in their work to subvert our perspective and surprise us. BLOW UP II explores the imaginative ways that artists use air as a tool for creating large-scale sculpture and includes imagery that is figurative and abstract. Accessible, yet rich with meaning, these pieces use perception of space to open a dialogue about pop culture and social norms.

Participating Artists: Chromaforms (Portola Valley, California), Nicole Banowetz (Denver, Colorado), Sharon Engelstein (Houston, Texas), FriendsWithYou (Los Angeles, California), Joshua Harker (Dexter, Michigan), Susan Lee-Chun (Miami, Florida), Matt Ritchie (San Francisco, California), Lizabeth Rossof (Denver, Colorado), Jen Stark (Los Angeles, California), and Max Streicher (Toronto, Canada).

Featuring Will Flowers

Will Flowers enjoys the study of color. As a long-standing supporter of arts and culture, Will takes interest in the elements which create “art” and it is for that reason that he focuses on the study and manipulation of color. Will’s work is intended to inspire interest in art, color, and perspective. Will believes in following the art, letting the materials and the piece lead the way, allowing it to become what it’s meant to be. Will is currently the Chair of the City of Fort Collins, Cultural Resources Board/Fort Fund.  He has served on the board for 7 years and as Chair for 3 years. Will is an active supporter and participant in many areas of art and culture, including visual and performance art, even community radio.
