See/Hear ‘Mars’ Sound Art at Eastern

While no “little green Martians” in flying saucers will be on display, guests are still in for a surprise when Eastern Connecticut State University hosts contemporary artist Sean Langlais’ exhibition, “Mars: A Sound Art Installation.” Showing from Oct. 26 to Dec.7 in the Art Gallery of the Fine Arts Instructional Center (FAIC), “Mars” will be the first exhibition of its kind on Eastern’s campus. An opening reception will occur Nov. 2 from 4-6 p.m.

The Norwich-based artist incorporates art, music, engineering and science into his work in an effort to challenge the traditional boundaries often surrounding fine art. Using every-day materials such as metal trays, magnets and wire, Langlais creates an immersive and multi-sensory display that caters to both the eyes and ears.

The show coincides with Eastern’s new sound and art installation courses in the visual arts program, in which Eastern students were tasked with assisting Langlais in setting up the exhibition.

Admission to the Art Gallery is free and open to the public. It is located in Room 112 of the FAIC. Gallery hours are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 11 to 5 p.m.; Thursdays from 1-7 p.m.; and Saturdays and Sundays from 2-5 p.m. Parking is available in the Cervantes parking garage and in the Student Center parking lot.
