House of Art(S)

Conceived and implemented by Art of Space and the curatorial staff at the Springfield Art Museum, House of Art(S) is an outdoor museum gallery constructed from murals and graffiti panels.

This is a public, participatory art installation. Everyone in Springfield is invited to continue painting the structural panels throughout the fall, and to add or subtract artwork and cool “stuff” from exhibits inside of the installation. Staff from the Springfield Art Museum will document the changes over the course of the installation, and this record will become part of the Museum’s collection.

Special thanks to the Hammons School of Architecture and Conco for their generous donations of in-kind support and materials to this project.
