Grotto of Dreams


This is a piece from "Grotto of Dreams," a portion of the Lightscapes exhibit at the Clay Center (Juliet Museum of Art, to be exact.) The artist who made this figure is Mark Soppeland, who makes some really interesting, highly-detailed assemblages using found objects and light sources. He made a collection of pieces for his "grotto," and a few extra stand at the entrance of the exhibit.

It really is. It's such a neat exhibit. You walk into this small, dark space, and there are all kinds of these sculptures -- some large, some small -- placed in niches and on pedestals throughout the "grotto." They each cast a different pattern and color of light, and it's like walking through some kind of treasure cave. It's a neat experience, although you can easily miss the entrance of the "grotto" if you don't walk all the way to the back of the "lightscapes" exhibit.
