Goggleworks is the largest interactive visual arts center in the United States, with a 145,000 square foot campus.

The exhibition is titled A Thimble for My Soul and features six large-scale sculptural pieces and eight smaller three-dimensional works.

The work of artist and teacher Joanna White of Eastern Florida State College involves recycled materials, including used post-it notes, plastic grocery bags, sandwich bags, and the discarded drawings of her students. She juxtaposes this discarded waste with more traditional artistic mediums, such as oil paint.

Using ephemeral objects such as onion skins, tracing paper and thread, she creates a visual paradox by constructing solid-looking geometric shapes out of flimsy, sagging materials.

Her three-dimensional sculptures involve many small components of folded paper boxes that are connected into a larger organic form. For this exhibition, several large works of art are suspended from the ceiling, using gravity to influence the shape of the work.

The Goggleworks Center for the Arts includes 5 exhibition galleries, 8 teaching studios, 35 artist studios, a 131-seat theatre, cafe and store showcasing the work of 200 artists.

The center offers rotating exhibits, workshops, artists-in-residence, and daily arthouse films in the theater.

The installation is housed in a historic factory building that was converted into a cultural and arts center in 2005, with a mission to “transform lives through unique interactions with art”.

Goggleworks is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and offers free admission and parking.

You can find more information about the center at Goggleworks.org.
