Narcissa Niblack Thorne, Art Deco Hall, c. 1925, 1932-1937. Miniature room. Gift of Niblack Thorne.
Discount Tire Free Family Weekend participants investigated the concept of scale with Phoenix-based artists Roy Wasson Valle and Koryn Woodward Wasson. Known for creating immersive, learning spaces using a variety of media, the artists drew inspiration from Phoenix Art Museum's Thorne Miniature Rooms. Intrigued by the rooms' rich history, meticulous detail, and exacting scale of 12:1, Wasson and Woodward’s mural depicts objects with the opposite scale of 1:12. Incorporated throughout the installation are photographs of miniature rooms constructed by Free Family Weekend participants. Using repurposed materials, their newly practiced measurement skills and creative problem solving are on full display.
Standard Size is organized by Phoenix Art Museum. The installation will be on view through February 26 in the Wolfswinkel Education Center Children’s Gallery. It is made possible through the generosity of donors to the Museum’s annual fund.
