Curator Tina Green-Price and the Giustina Gallery staff have successfully matched art exhibits with each of Oregon State University's year-long grant festivals, from space to sea. But this month's Sun Grant Festival proved to be particularly challenging. The festival is focused on more than just the sun, it is about alternative energy sources and the planet, Green-Price says.
Solar power was an influence for one of the exhibit's more obscure pieces, an acrylic painting, "Dr. Frankenstein's Monster Goes Solar" by Michael Ousley of Langlois, Oregon. The bright red, yellow and orange painting features Frankenstein with an external LED attached to his forehead.
