Additional Art on Display
The Mashburn/Marshall Tactile Gallery
One of the first galleries of its type in the country, the Tactile Gallery was established in 1981, the brainchild of docents Peggy Marshall and Mary Mashburn. As a prototype for their bold plan, they used the Mary Duke Biddle Gallery for the Blind in the Raleigh, North Carolina Museum of Art. The founders set about creating a space where all patrons could be self-sufficient and able to enjoy the full experience of the art.
Lacuna by Andrew Ramiro Tirado
Lacuna means a gap, pause or blank space. In relation to the monumental sculpture, the title is suggestive of something incomplete, perhaps in formation. “There is an unmistakable and powerful human element inherent in the iconography of the hand involving ideas like connection and touch, vulnerability and strength.” –Andrew Ramiro Tirado
Eric Bransby 75th Anniversary mural
The Fine Arts Center commissioned Bransby, now 94, to create his final mural that tells the story of the FAC with nods to the Broadmoor Art Academy, music, dance, theatre, arts education and recognizable figures like Boardman Robinson and Martha Graham, in commemoration of the FAC’s 75th Anniversary. Permanent installation on view in the Smith Glass Gallery.
