Translucence | Tampa Museum of Art

Show Info

Translucence experimented with how small shifts can make a large impact in a cultural institution. This simple, yet dynamic design covered all forty-eight panels on the north and south walls lining the atrium and lobby of the Tampa Museum of Art. Visible from both inside and out, the work connected the facing walls in a color dialogue. The project was conceived with the goal to democratize the public area and to engage the community with the museum. When seen from afar, the colors on the two curtain walls interacted in a translucent glow, activating new colors from different perspectives and light situations.
