If you never made it down to Gallery 31 to see Steve Coy at work on his “Futurescape 2050″ installation, here it is. (That’s Steve sporting a tie.)
Steve Coy was the last of four artists who participated in the Honolulu Academy of Arts’ first Artist in Residence program sponsored by the Arthur and Mae Orvis Foundation. He made his final appearance on April 20 at ARTafterDARK: Camelot, when this footage was shot. The program is open to University of Hawai‘i graduate art students and recent UH MFA graduates. Organized by Aaron Padilla, who just left his position as assistant education curator at the Academy to join The Contemporary Museum, and UH Art and Art History Department Chair Gaye Chan, the program was a great success. From October 2009 to April 2010, Allison Uttley, Boz Schurr, Elizabeth R. Curtis and Coy all created engaging installations that had visitors lingering in Gallery 31. We thank them, Aaron, Gaye and the Arthur and Mae Orvis Foundation.
