An Installation By Wes Bruce from Bryan Bangerter.

A few months back, a friend of mine took me to one of the most awe-inspiring and magical art exhibits I've ever been to. Sezio artist,Wes Bruce, created the installation titled "Ms. Augustine Greane". The interactive art experience takes one back to childhood and through the recollections of lives once lived. The fort is built within the museum, and is made out of found and collected objects of days gone by. As you journey through the fort, you are forced to interact as a child would; crawling through small spaces, exploring on hands and knees through long hallways, and laying on a bed of sleeping bags in a pitch black room with only flashlights to illuminate the artwork and curious discoveries. There are thousands of letters to be read, photos to be seen, and memories to delve into; all while listening to the ethereal soundtrack created for the exhibit. It was an experience that I will never forget + I'd like to thank Mr. Bruce for taking me back to a time when life was simpler and a lot more free.

The show is up until December 31st, at the California Center for the Arts, so get there before it's too late! You won't regret it.
