'Magic Chromacity' fabric art being created at UAB

Posted: Updated:
New art pieces are being created to celebrate the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s new Cultural Corridor.

According to a news release from UAB, fabric and installation artist Amanda Browder is asking for help from the community to create two giant fabric installations.

Browder is a New York City-based artist who uses donated fabrics to create large-scale creations involving volunteers, city buildings, and more.

In the first project for UAB’s Cultural Corridor is called “Magic Chromacity”.

It involves Browder using recycled and donated materials to create large-scale art pieces on both the Alys Stephens Center, and the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts.

Those buildings face each other on 10th Avenue South, and the art pieces will allow the buildings to “speak” to each other.

Browder will be working on the project in April 2014 and July 2014.
