A visual artist, playwright, poet, stage/video director, and actor, John W. Love, Jr. is a literary and performance artist whose work can be described as complex, circuitous, textural, and contextual. Love is the first individual artist to receive the 2011 Arts & Science Council McColl Award in support of the creation of his latest interdisciplinary work FECUND.
From May 6 - 20, 2013, Love will be in residency at the Mint Museum Uptown activating the Morrison Atrium with an experiential installation that will invite visitors to contemplate notions of “yes.” The residency and interactive components of the installation will act as precursor to his one-man performance as part of First Look Friday on May 17.
Access to the Robert Haywood Morrison Atrium, inside Mint Museum Uptown at Levine Center for the Arts, 500 South Tryon Street, is free during the hours of 10AM - 6PM Mon - Sat (and until 9 PM on Tuesdays), 1PM - 5PM Sundays. Regular admission policies to the remainder of the museum will apply during Love’s residency. The Mint will post updates about the project at facebook.com/mintmuseum and @TheMintMuseum.
