DESCRIPTION

Occidental College presents "We Will Show You Fear in a Handful of Dust,” a public sculpture by Los Angeles-based artist collective Finishing School, in collaboration with artists Nadia Afghani and Matt Fisher.  The sculpture will be on view at Occidental College from March 14 through May 9, 2014.

 "We Will Show You Fear in a Handful of Dust" is a full-scale model of a MQ-1B Predator Drone. The public is invited to participate in the project by using age-old construction methods to apply architectural-grade mud to the surface of an industrially manufactured drone substrate.  The application of mud to the sculpture occurs Friday, March 14 through Sunday, March 16 (for exact times please check oxy.edu/oxyarts).

A reception for "We Will Show You Fear in a Handful of Dust" will be held on Wednesday, March 19 from 5pm to 8pm.
