Look, Don't Touch

Look, Don't Touch

Art Show, Drawings/Works on Paper, Sculpture, Painting
"Look, Don’t Touch" presents work from the Wichita Art Museum that investigates both visual and physical texture. The tactile quality of a painting, print, or sculpture can come from the material of the object itself, such as the thick swabs of paint applied to a canvas or the polished smoothness of a bronze sculpture. Artists also create the illusion of texture on a flat piece of paper or canvas, tricking the eye into believing that the surfaces it sees are not truly flat at all. Look, Don’t Touch invites viewers to delight in works that kindle our desire to reach out and touch. The exhibition also includes interactive touch stations that imitate the surfaces of the paintings and sculptures displayed.
