The Artists, Community and Teaching Program presents visiting artist Marni Gittleman
 
Marni Gittleman is a Community Artist and Education Consultant specializing in ideation and participant engagement. Her approach is multi-modal, joyful and integrative with intention to have an empowering impact on individuals and the community. Her recent project GLOWmasphere is an immersive eco-art experience integrating cast-off objects, percussion, movement and community interaction to engage heart and soul.  A luminescent 36’ geodesic dome entices you closer. Small groups are welcomed into the dome for a guided sound and movement experience. Shadow Projection artists collage reDiscover warehouse materials onto opaque projectors casting images and patterns for Glow visitors outside and inside the dome to enjoy. Each ten minute session is unique and generates an ever changing set of images on the dome. Conceived by community artist Marni Gittleman and realized together by artist team Leslie K. Gray and Mary Beth Trautwein, Director of the reDiscover Center.
