Currier Museum of Art presents Cristi Rinklin Installation

The Currier Museum of Art presents a Cristi Rinklin installation, on view through September 9, 2012, combining hand-painting and digital technologies for her immersive installation inspired by a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows in the Currier’s Putnam Gallery.

Cristi Rinklin, digital mock-up for Putnam Gallery windows installation. Cristi Rinklin is represented by Steven Zevitas Gallery, Boston.

Billowing cloud and meandering waterfall forms in blue, green and purple will wrap across the large expanse of windows and nearby walls, surrounding visitors in an awesome spectacle of nature’s destructive forces. Light will pour through the window, and much like stained glass, will project colored imagery into the gallery. Nearby walls – completely covered in patterns that evoke historic wallpaper – continue the immersive effect and transport visitors to a world beyond the confines of the architecture.

The museum’s collection of 19th century New England landscape paintings also inspired Rinklin’s project, which will be on view through September 9.

The Currier Museum of Art is located at 150 Ash Street, Manchester, NH. For more information, visit or call 603.669.6144 x108.
