Humans Connection With Electronics to be Focal Point of New Art Exhibit

Thursday, March 08, 2018

 

The Worcester Center for Crafts is set to present its newest exhibition featuring award-winning artist Victor Pacheco called “A Beautiful Connection.”

The exhibit is free and open to the public starting on Thursday, March 15 with an opening reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Th Exhibit

The exhibit features a series of sculptural scenarios that playfully observe and explore the connection between humans and their electronic devices.

Statisticians say that approximately 77% of all people in the United States use a smartphone or an iPad, checking their phones about 46 times a day. 

"There's that instant satisfaction. Simultaneously, there's an instant connection and a deep distraction,” says Pacheco.

Through his sculptures, Pacheco is thinking about communication, distraction, and connection. He skillfully uses frogs as stand-ins for humans, allowing the viewer to laugh more easily and creating the space where the viewer can then question if they are laughing at themselves.

About Pacheco

Pacheco received his Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and his BFA in Sculpture from the University of Hartford Art School.

He recently was one of only 22 artists/artist collaboratives nation-wide to be awarded an ARTS MATTER Fellowship that recognizes him as an artist whose work intends to break ground aesthetically and socially. 

He now resides in Worcester. He has received a Material Needs Award from ArtsWorcester and is active in the community.
