Albuquerque, August 13, 2012 - Explore the dynamic properties of light and discover how art and science work together in a variety of creative ways – through a new exhibit: Lightworks – on display now at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science.
Hilda Volkin, a resident of Albuquerque, is the artist behind this spectacular exhibit. Ms. Volkin works with various kinds of light sources and combines dichroic film together with formed Plexiglas to create three-dimensional artworks. By bending and forming these materials, multiple forms and colors are visible!
Hilda Volkin is a graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art and received her master's degree from the Harvard School of Education.
She has received the New Mexico one percent for the arts award and commissions for hospital chapels, meditation spaces, corporate offices and recreation centers.
Working with various kinds of light sources has been a continual source of inspiration in her artwork. Visitors to the museum can explore the dynamic properties of light and see Ms. Volkin’s vision come to life!
Lightworks will be on display at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science until January 3, 2013.
