Richmond-based artist Noah Scalin is the latest artist presents their work at Gallery @ 17 at 17 West Broad Street. The Gallery is located within The Mezzo at City Center.
Scalin is the creator of the Webby Award-winning Skull-A-Day project and was the inaugural artist-in-residence at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business. His work has appeared in Fact Company, USA Today, The Telegraph, and the New York Times. He has also shown internationally, with exhibits in Times Square, the Mütter Museum, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Scalin creates photographs, installations, sculptures and more using mass-produced consumer items, asking the viewer to recontextualize the “things” in their lives that are normally discarded.
For his latest collection, he uses commercially produced stickers. “These represent the cacophony of our modern American culture…My goal is to organize this noise into recognizable signals – ones that illuminate the things we should be prioritizing when we’re so easily distracted by the spectacle,” said Scalin.
Scalin’s work can be seen at Gallery @ 17 throughout September on Mondays through Saturdays, 8:30AM – 5:30PM, and on Sundays from 11AM – 5PM.
