McKissick Museum in Columbia, SC, Offers
Exhibit to Chronicle Adaptation of Jonathan Green's Paintings
Four paintings by University of South Carolina art students are part of an exhibit that McKissick Museum is sponsoring through Mar. 19, 2005, in connection with the Columbia City Ballet's adaptation of Jonathan Green's works.
Titled, Off the Stage and Onto the Wall:
The Evolution of Ballet, the exhibit captures the artistry
involved in the transformation of Green's works from the visual
to the dance stage. In addition to the silkscreen prints,
the exhibit includes photographs and video of rehearsals and interviews
with Green and William Starrett, the artistic director for
the Columbia City Ballet, and music featuring singer and actress Marlena Smalls, who will dance in the ballet. The ballet titled, Off the Wall & Onto the Stage : Dancing the Art of Jonathan Green, was performed in Feb., 2005, at the Koger Center in Columbia.
Green conceived the idea and did sketches for
the prints titled, Torch Song, Casting for Bait, Dance Hall
Romance and Beach Dance, specifically for the ballet
and exhibit. Using those sketches and working under his direction,
the art students created vibrant works, which will be available
for purchase after the exhibit ends to benefit USC's art department.
