Michael Dowling and Jake Riley bring new experience to Festival of the Creative Arts
On April 28, Brandeis and local community members are invited to experience "Source/ReSoruce," a large-scale public art installation that will be unveiled outside of the Rose Art Museum. It will be the latest participatory work from Michael Dowling, the 2010 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist in Residence, who has been constructing the project with Jake Riley, a staff member from Dowling's organization, Medicine Wheel Productions.
While Dowling says "Source/ReSource," will invite participants to reflect on their own stories, Dowling's artistic mission is a story that should be shared with the community as well. To that end, BrandeisNOW talked with Dowling and Riley while they took a break from working outside of the Rose.

The April 28 unveiling of "Source/ReSource" will kick-off this year's Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts, an annual five-day event at the university. "Source/ReSource" will be on view through June 30, 2010.The project is made possible by The Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Annual Award, the Aaron Foundation, Eric Green P’07, Danny Lehrman ’64, Ann Tanenbaum ’66, and Fern Lowenfels '59.
