Evan & Stacey: Continuum

September 1 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Foundry Art Centre is thrilled to announce the unveiling of the third annual Grand Hall Mural Project, featuring Continuum, a three-part mural by St. Louis collaborative Evan and Stacey.


Drawing on local architecture and video game design, Evan and Stacey have created an open-ended sculptural narrative in which viewers can visually move through Continuum by exploring each of the three alcoves in the Grand Hall. Like the relationships we build in life, these interconnected structures can offer a way to see ourselves as a small part of a larger whole. In this way, Continuum explores our individuality and our interconnectedness: that our strengths and our community do not have a centralized source but rather stem from our various backgrounds, beliefs, and influences.


As a husband and wife collaborative, Evan and Stacey use various media and technologies to create works that represent and explore their personal experiences. In their recent work, they create architectural spaces to investigate accessibility, use sculptural objects to connect to childhood experiences, and the uncanny nature of memory. Their practice’s intention is to create a space for the viewer’s experiences to be validated, whatever that may be.


Since 2017, their collaborative process combines their backgrounds of art and science. Evan holds a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Stacey holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri and is a licensed professional engineer in the State of Missouri.


The Grand Hall Mural Project, begun in 2021, is an exhibition program featuring original, commissioned work by professional artists installed in the Foundry Art Centre’s Grand Hall. As with all of the Foundry’s arts and exhibitions programs, the project places a special emphasis on the extraordinary talent of our region’s artists.


Continuum is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.


Please join the Foundry for the unveiling of Continuum on Friday, September 1st, from 5-8pm. For more information, please visit foundryartcentre.org or email Jessica Mannisi, art and exhibitions, at jmannisi@foundryartcentre.org.
