ArtServe's RedEYE Brought Art to Life and Life to Art

As a victim of its own popularity, ArtServe's alt exhibition RedEYE sent the public to park their vehicles at Parker Playhouse's field next door. This meant patrons had to take a half mile jaunt through fields, parks, and parking lots to get to the visual assault that they were so anticipating. Google warned: This route may be missing sidewalks or pedestrian paths. It wasn't kidding.

Once we made it to RedEYE, what lay inside made hoofin' it worth it. The rooms housed installations, an eclectic mix of pierced, tattooed twenty-somethings and very, very confused seniors. A non-traditional art exhibition, RedEYE represents a new way of experiencing art. These days, it's not always enough to just walk into a room and see a thoughtful creation, we want to be surrounded by art, have it stimulate all our senses. This is what RedEYE managed to do skillfully. Here are a few scenes we stole from our day of gazing at living art.
