In Person—574: Sophia Ainslie

About the Exhibition


Sep 10 – Dec 6, 2015


Remis Sculpture Court
This exhibition explores the creation and installation of a monumental site-specific art commission for the new Collaborative Learning and Innovation Complex at 574 Boston Avenue on Tufts’ main Medford campus by Boston-based artist and Tufts alum Sophia Ainslie (MFA 2001). Ainslie’s seven-panel mural, titled In Person—574, is her largest work to date and the first to use digital printing methods; it spans over 6,000 square feet and four stories of the building’s central stairwell. The Gallery exhibition includes five of the seven original paintings created as the basis for the site-specific commission, as well as materials related to Ainslie’s creative process, and a slideshow documenting the mural’s creation and installation.
