In October 2015, Hi-Fructose Vol. 29 featured artist Olek visited the Virginia MOCA for a special workshop with community members and to plan a large-scale public artwork on site that will raise awareness about the waters near Virginia Beach. Over the weekend, the New York-based artist's project was unveiled at the opening of Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose - a larger than life future New York Times article covering the facade of the museum entrance. Olek's mural, crocheted in a photo-realistic style, imagines our Earth Day headline news in 2020.
The third and final rendition of "Turn the Page: The First 10 Years of Hi-Fructose" closed at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento this week. The exhibit, organized by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and made possible by the City of Virginia Beach, collected the work of 51 contemporary artists and in this version, featured an exclusive installation from artist Mark Dean Veca.
Mark Dean Veca, one of the featured artists in “Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose,” created a new installation for the exhibition’s final stop at Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. The absorbing, surreal “Maddest Hatter” greets visitors straight out of the elevator at the museum. In an Instagram video, the artist guides viewers through the completed installation.
Students at Salem Visual and Performing Arts Academy in Virginia got a new teacher early this morning. Polish-born street artist Olek (featured in HF Vol. 29) known for her candy-colored crocheted installations, shared her talents with 30 lucky students in a special workshop hosted by Virginia MOCA. "It's nice to be back in high school!", Olek shared in an instagram post. "It was so worth to wake up at 7:15am to meet these amazing young individuals." The workshop was held in anticipation of the artist's free public workshop series as part of the "Turn the Page: Ten Years of Hi-Fructose" exhibition coming to the museum next spring.
