Marylyn Dintenfass exhibit opening at Rauschenberg Gallery
The alluring visual work of internationally recognized artist Marylyn Dintenfass will be exhibited at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Edison State College, located in Fort Myers from Jan. 14 to Feb. 19, 2011.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, Jan. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m., during which a gallery talk will take place at 7 p.m.
Dintenfass’ work is found in public, corporate and private collections around the world, including the United States, Denmark, Israel, Italy, and Japan. More than 25 public collections hold her work, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Flint Institute of Art, New Orleans Museum of Art and The Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Dintenfass has had numerous one person exhibitions including several museum shows as well as other academic and professional venues. Dintenfass has 26 public installations to her credit, with Parallel Park being the most recent.
Other site specific installations by Dintenfass include pieces for the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York, Connecticut State Superior Courthouse, Baltimore Federal Financial Building, Ben Gurion University in Israel, and TajimiMiddle School in Japan.
Additionally, her work has been shown in dozens of group shows, beginning in the early 1970s.
Dintenfass’ massive project Parallel Park was recently completed and installed on the exterior walls of the five-story Lee County Justice Center Parking Garage on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The City of Fort Myers hosted a dedication ceremony downtown in early December 2010 celebrating project completion. The 30,000 square feet of digitized images on Kevlar/fiberglass fabric panels are the result of an innovative Lee County and City of Fort Myers collaboration.
Dintenfass was selected as one of 14 artists nationally invited to compete for this commission. With that installation now complete, this exhibition gives viewers an opportunity to see some of the original Monotypes created for Parallel Park, as well as some of Dintenfass’ most recent work.
