Artist Jenna (Citrus) Rueger is presenting an aural and visual art display of her work in the unique environment of Koch Immersive Theater. While usually reserved for planetarium shows, the domed projection screen inside the Museum’s planetarium is more than just a venue to see stars and giant screen movies. Her work, which consists of photographic designs, original paintings and artwork are to be displayed on the big screen in 360 degree, eye encompassing splendor. Some of the pieces that are to be displayed are reminiscent of rotundas, fractals, and abstract imagery. Many never before seen images of paintings, photographs, and tessellations will be projected for one show only.

Miss Rueger is this year’s Efroymson Bridge Year Fellow at the University of Southern Indiana. This fellowship is presented to a recent graduate from USI and allows the recipient a year to prepare a portfolio for the purpose of applying to graduate programs for a MFA. Jenna will host a solo exhibition of her work in December 2016 at the McCutchan Art Center/Pace Galleries located at the University of Southern Indiana to complete her fellowship.

After unleashing some of the possibilities 3-D printing held, I was inspired to convert one of my paintings to a 3-D modeled light.

This process began with a painting.
