On display through May 9, 2021 comes the work of Jordan Fowler – Tangible: Where Art and Technology Converge. “Artifacts of a different time” is one of the phrases that artist Jordan Fowler uses to describe his sculptures. Fowler combines traditional welding techniques with contemporary computer science to create interactive and conceptual works of art that echo the ruins of a science fiction world gone awry.
To celebrate this fantastic exhibition, we will be hosting a Cosplay Quest through Abingdon, VA. Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite Sci-Fi / Fantasy character.
The Quest will begin at WKMA where you will visit Tangible and receive a clue that will send you on your Quest. Each clue will take you to a participating business in Abingdon where you will find a token and your next clue.
Each participating business will feature specials, giveaways, door prizes, or coupons.
