A Deep Dive into the Work of Floyd Tunson: Collections Experience at the FAC Museum — Thursdays through the month of February from 1-2 p.m.
Focusing on a recent acquisition and other works by Floyd Tunson, Collections and Education staff at the FAC Museum will be leading in-depth experiences for students with Tunson’s work throughout the month of February. These engagements will focus on preservation, care, and representations of cultural identity and social histories within Tunson’s work.
As an artist from Colorado and a previous exhibiter at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Tunson explores concepts of cultural identity, American social history, pop culture, and the human condition. Tunson says that from one direction he sees “the terror of chaos, man’s inhumanity to man, mortality, and the unknown. From another direction, the human condition seems like a magnificent, orderly evolution of extraordinary beauty” stating that the totality of his work reflects his “quest to comprehend and express these forces and their interconnectedness.”
