Arthur Ross Gallery

Silence Dogood

Columbian artist Miler Lagos will create Silence Dogood, a site-specific installation in the Arthur Ross Gallery. Lagos is a multi media artist with an interest in relating different socioeconomic environments urban and popular and re-appropriating the different visual and social phenomena that emerge in each context. Lagos will create the installation using literally four tons of recycled newspapers to sculpt trees. He will create the piece in January during a three week residency as a Distinguished International Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania.
