The SYNCHRONUS art festival kicks off at Concordia on Saturday, September 8 at 2:00 p.m. with the official opening of "Flax Field," by John Freeman and Lyndal Osborne.
Flax Field is a large and striking piece of installed visual art that covers most of Concordia's front lawn on Ada Boulevard. The installation simulates a field of flax flowers, creating a textural sensual sense for the viewer.
Mayor Stephen Mandell and his wife Lynn will be on hand to open the work at the unveiling.
The work is just one of several events for the Art and Life arts festival called “SYNCHRONUS.” Other key events Concordia will hosts during the festival include:
