FAMILY SCAVENGER HUNT
Inspired by Ghost of a Dream’s Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution), wander through the galleries looking for colors and shapes related to the sun. Pick one up at the Front Desk!
Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution) is a seven-channel video installation created specifically for the Ackland Art Museum that uses the formal positioning of the horizon line to connect each video of the sun.
Hear from artistic collaborators Ming Ren (American, b. 1956) and Hansong Zhang (Chinese, b. 1969), as they explain the process behind creating Mysterious Ink World, Part One (2016).
