Learn About GAP Award
Bernadette Vielbig received a 2004 GAP for the purchase of equipment necessary to complete a series of sculptural pieces scheduled for exhibition at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center this coming fall. As a part of the Ready to Wear invitational exhibition, Vielbig is in the process of completing a “life cast ‘skin suit’ created by casting latex rubber into a series of life molds, a dress created by sewing MRI and X-ray images taken from the body, and lastly a pair of go-go boots fashioned from 1960s and 70s educational film strips that will incorporate a soundtrack element as well.”
Bernadette also serves as an Artist Trust Ambassador.
