Look Up: An Immersive Pop-Up Art Event
This past year has illuminated both our profound desire to come together and challenged us to think in new, radical ways about how we gather. For sculptor and MacArthur “genius” Elizabeth Turk ’83, meeting our current moment with creativity and openness was an imperative. Last November, at the height of the pandemic, Turk and her collaborators at ET Projects created an immersive, outdoor pop-up art event with residents of Mount San Antonio retirement community in Claremont. The residents, sporting specially designed masks and umbrellas, were captured from above. The result: a brilliant and kaleidoscopic series of images that transmitted an unexpected joy amid an unquestionably dark time.
Now, we invite students, faculty, and staff from The Claremont Colleges to participate in a unique iteration of this event. Attendees will be given a mask and umbrella with an original Elizabeth Turk design and will take part in a socially distanced gathering that will provide both an opportunity for in-person connection and a chance to contribute to the creation of a new work of art.
Join us for an experience that seeks to satisfy our deeply human need to come together.
Scripps College prioritizes the health and safety of its community members and is following the guidance of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health for outdoor gatherings. Adherence to these guidelines will be strictly enforced during the event.
