Special Windows Project: David Teng Olsen
This invitational pilot program at the Davis is designed to engage local artists in transforming the dramatic expanse of floor-to-ceiling ground-level windows that articulates the lobby of our signature Rafael Moneo building and its courtyard plaza. The debut features a commission by David Teng Olsen, associate professor of art at Wellesley College, based on objects in the permanent collections. Curated by rotation among the Davis curatorial staff, the first iteration of the Windows project is organized by Lisa Fischman and will remain in place for one year.
Presented with generous support from Wellesley College Friends of Art at the Davis.
