Painting Alum Keil Johnson included in special exhibition at Heritage Museum

Posted on April 25, 2013 by School of Art

CSULB Painting alum Keil Johnson was included in a special exhibition to coincide with a show at the Heritage Museum in Massachusetts entitled, “Driving our Dreams: Imagination in Motion.” This exhibition features concept cars from the 1950s up to the present. Mr. Johnson created a large scale sculpture called “Paper Metrolpolis” which created an entire mega-city out of paper buildings and architecture. He was assisted by members of the community who took charge in creating whatever structures they wanted, from buildings, churches, farms, bridges, and schools to the means of getting around be it buses, cars, even boats. “The Paper Metropolis is a representation of an artistic vision of the future that’s been created by the people who have participated…by the community, for the community, about the community.” said Jan Crocker, Exhibits Manager. For a video of the installation click here, (and more information here.)
