ST. AUGUSTINE, FL (02/28/2014)(readMedia)-- Students in Laura Mongiovi's advanced sculpture class will be showing off original pieces at the March 7 First Friday Art Walk in a unique way: peephole boxes.
Each student collaborated with a local business to create and install peepholes. Visitors who peep inside will be able to view an original creation by a student artist.
"The idea came out of my desire to provide students an opportunity to show their work off-campus and gain experience presenting and executing their ideas to members of the community," said Mongiovi, an associate professor of art at Flagler College. "The peephole boxes provide an interactive experience for art walk visitors, give additional exposure to local businesses and allow students to showcase their creative ideas."
The peepholes will be on view from 5 to 9 p.m. and can be seen at the following locations:
Richard Dickinson – City Gates, North end of St. George St.
