Valentine's Day

Join one of MOCA's artists in residence; Scotty Wagner for Valentine's withhttp://figurelight.com/ Figurelight is an interactive experience in which artist Scotty Wagner draws projected light directly on the body of a live model. This process not only makes the model glow, it teleports them to another visual dimension. By drawing on the model’s body, he simultaneously creates a portrait of them that can be printed and saved forever! And everyone gets free pics!  He has performed this work at bars, museums, and homes, including the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, the Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, the Mercury Lounge in Goleta, CA, and Rhines Studios in Los Angeles to name a few.  Scotty Wagner is a performance and video artist based in Los Angeles, CA and Northern Michigan. He received his MFA from the University of California Santa Barbara and his BFA from the University of Michigan. He has had solo exhibitions at NowSpace in Los Angeles, SBCAST in Santa Barbara, SHED Projects in Oakland, and has been included in group presentations at the Museum of Art, Design & Architecture UCSB, The Fed Galleries, Radical Abacus, and 2739 Edwin in Detroit. He has performed at Di Rosa Foundation in Napa, the Hammer Museum in LA, and at the late SHED Projects in Oakland, CA. He will be an artist in residence at MOCA Tucson for ten weeks at the beginning of 2018.
