The Fuller Museum of Art in Brockton presents The Physics of Art, work by contemporary artists who use the basic principles of physics in holography, installation art, photography, sculpture and video, through November 2. The show includes work by holographers Susan Gamble and Michael Wenyon, artists-in-residence at the Haystack Observatory since 1996, and Harriet Casdin-Silver, who was a fellow at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies from 1976-85.
The Museum Loan Network's (MLN) new Web home page offers information on the program which promotes and fosters collection-sharing of art objects on a long-term basis among museums in the United States. In addition, museums can request a password to search the MLN directory, a database of art objects available for long-term loan. The MLN is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts and is administered through MIT's Office of the Arts.
