Experimental Art Installation Opened At Philip Sherlock Centre


Fall From Grace

Robert “Toby” Grant’s “experimental” art installation opened yesterday at the Philip Sherlock Centre, UWI.

Robert Grant, a sculptor, is a graduate of the Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts. The exhibition was opened by Petrona Morrison of the Edna Manley College and is part of the Philip Sherlock International Arts Festival 2009 which runs until March 8.

According to the artist, the work entitled “Fall From Grace”  is an evolving living creation made of vines which will grow and change over time.  So he encourages viewers to visit it more than once to see how it changes.  The exhibition is on until March 8.

The program for the rest of the festival includes a Drama Workshop on February 27, The Art of Steel- UWI Panoridim Steel Orchestra on March 1, and the Jamaica Dance Umbrella from March 6 to 8.

    I wished I could have seen more of your work in real life. But I admire the fotos. Keep your focus. It’s worth the struggle.
