You already read our feature on Art31, the Art & History Museums – Maitland’s monthlong art extravaganza, last week. (Right?) We focused on the art center’s main show, Material World: Glass, Rubber & Paper, in that article, but wait – there’s more! As part of this year’s emphasis on experimenting with nontraditional materials, they offered three local artists residencies at Factur, Orlando’s spiffiest maker space. Boy Kong, Marla E and Dan Hess have each been working with the 3-D printers, laser cutters, lathes and shop bot at Factur to expand and explore their practice, and Thursday night, two of them will share the results. Popping up in the History Center’s courtyard during the Third Thursday Gallery Hop will be installations by Boy Kong, who has created a giant fiberglass sculpture adorned with his signature mix of street art and traditional Asian motifs, and Marla E, who has taken the textures and colors of her Urban Plaster works three-dimensional on large cubes of laser-cut acrylic and welded metal. (Catch Dan Hess’ installation at Canvs March 31.)
