South Puget Sound Community College students and Olympia-based artist and musician Arrington de Dionyso are teaming up for a special installation next week at The Gallery at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts. The special collaboration, titled ANCESTRAL TUNNEL, will be on display Feb. 17-19. A special reception will take place at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 19 at The Gallery.

The collaborative effort includes two long strips of paper suspended in mid-air that delineate the guiding walls of an initiatory passageway through liminal spaces. Like a cave painting, ANCESTRAL TUNNEL illuminates the spontaneity of the creative process, unfolding and taking unexpected twists and turns. The installation means to emphasize life, and art, as the very moment we experience now, rather than a destination to be arrived at.

The special reception will also include live music from de Dionyso (bass clarinet), Oomung Varma (tabla), and Shannon Hall (dance).
