Savannah, Georgia.- The Telfair Museums are proud to present “Leo Villareal”, on view at the museum through June 3rd. Organized by the San Jose Museum of Art and opening there in the summer of 2010, the show has travelled to Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, Nevada, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, Kansas, and now, the Telfair Museum of Art. Another venue has recently been added which will bring the exhibition to the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Madison, Wisconsin from September 8th through December 30th. Leo Villareal is a pioneer in the use of LEDs and computer-driven imagery and known both for his light sculptures and architectural, site-specific works. This exhibition, his first major traveling museum survey, seeks to place Villareal’s body of work within the continuum of contemporary art.
