Skin in the evening light

Mad Homes, Capitol Hill

July 14th – August 7th, 2011 Prior to salvage, a group of neighboring homes in North Capitol Hill was used by artists to create site-specific installations. Artists were free to use both the interior and exterior spaces of the homes as their creative canvases to produce dynamic artinstallations. MadArt believes these homes provided a noteworthy venue for the public to view art. Artists were given a unique opportunity to work in a temporary space, without conventional gallery show constraints. The selected artists’ works included energetic and innovative paintings and sculptures. MadArt’s goal on this art project was to provide unexpected enjoyment and a distinctive educational experience for the neighborhood and visitors, while providing local artists a valuable and rare opportunity to create artwork.

Laura Ward

Laura Ward

Laura Ward’s work is a reaction to the physical, emotional and historical presence of abandoned houses. She is interested in the many forms a house takes on; a box, a shelter, a home, a memory, an aging shell. To Laura each space contains patterns existing in both the architecture and decorations. Peeling away one layer often reveals a new design or texture beneath. Born in New Hampshire, Laura received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, MA. with a concentration in glass and sculpture, and her BFA from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, IL.
