By Gregory Gavin
Through his company RIVEROPOLIS, Gregory Gavin Creates large scale sculptural installations in public space – often containing running water – and invites the public to add to them spontaneously using a variety of arts and crafts materials. His goal is to reclaim art production as a social activity for both children and adults with the potential of luring people of diverse backgrounds into casual conversation and dialog. Serving as both lead artist and public facilitator, Gavin sets up his mobile studio in wide array of locations including neighborhoods, school, museums, special events, fairs and occasionally corporate campuses. Visitors are invited to encounter each other at these evolving landscape sculptures make art that adds t it, and attend to a final celebration when the work is complete.
