Mass (Colder Darker Matter) by Cornelia Parker
Proposing that matter is never destroyed, but merely transformed, Cornelia Parker challenges the way we experience destruction. Mass (Colder Darker Matter) is made from the charred remains of a Texas Baptist church that was struck by lightning. Take a closer look at this sculpture throughout February with Gerry Grout Education Director, Kaela Hoskings. Included with general admission.
