St. Pete Moving Still at The Quak
November 14, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This art exhibit reception at The Quak Center for Lifelong Learning at Westminster Suncoast will serve as the finisage (closing event) to the social art project “St. Pete Moving Still” at Westminster – and at the same time it’s also the public premiere of the project and the beginning of the individual art piece’s journey to other exhibits, homes, and places of care.
This event is the public companion to the by-invite-only event at the Westminster Suncoast Nursing Center on November 2nd, which will be the true start of the “St. Pete Moving Still” visual, biophilic, social art work by Luci Westphal.
St. Pete Moving Still features a collection of portable frames, each showing a nature image that may at first appear to be just a photo, until the viewer detects some movement… Each frame, in fact, plays a video.
Based on the theory of biophilic art, Luci initiated this art project to improve people’s emotional, mental, and physical well-being as it connects the viewer to nature outdoors, while being indoors.
On November 2nd, at an invite-only event in the Nursing Center, Luci will unveil the “Moving Still” frames – and residents will be able to borrow these frames for their rooms until the public premiere on November 14th.
Luci Westphal received a 2022 St. Petersburg Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant for her biophilic, social, visual art project St. Pete Moving Still.
