From the Old Jail Art Center:
“Austin-based artist and musician Steve Parker examines history, systems, and behavior through interactive sculptures. Utilizing his background in art, music, and math, he creates elaborate listening and sound “machines” from found objects, electronic devices, and musical instruments. For the OJAC’s Cell Series, Parker will engage not only visitors but also the historic 1877 jail structure in which he will install his works. Parker’s creative communal projects have made him a recent recipient of the Rome Prize as well as a Fulbright Fellowship, Harrington Fellowship, and the Tito’s Prize.
The 2021 Cell Series is generously supported by McGinnis Family Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas, Kathy Webster in memory of Charles H. Webster, National Endowment for the Arts, with additional funding from Jenny & Rob Dupree.
