Available to All, is an immersive sculptural installation constructed and collaged together by a group of artists who, through multimedia fragments and light, built a structure that embraces the metaphorical associations intrinsic to the lighthouse. Responding to a tumultuous social climate that threatens the inclusiveness of society, this project is meant to offer the physical and emotional voyager a safe harbor. Placed in Joshua Tree, CA, the desert becomes a metaphor for the vastness of rough seas and shifts the focal point inland, away from the perimeter, offering a representation of belonging inside.
Join Rough Play Projects in partnership with Mojave Desert Land Trust in celebration of Earth Day featuring the work of Sarah Vanderlip Chair of the Department of Art and Art History and Professor of Sculpture at U.S.C.B.
"In 1953, the Herring Cove Bath House opened, an event consequential enough to draw Governor Christian A. Herter. Designed by Mario Caputo of Boston, the state-built bath house was a handsome-enough modernist structure with a glass-block facade. It could have passed for a small-town airport terminal." -David Dunlap Building Provincetown.
