LINKS Public Art <-> Bowling Green is a collaborative art project consisting of public art works that address issues of site, history, space, self, and culture. In its second year, this community-wide event invites the public to view 15 interactive and dynamic artworks installed throughout the City of Bowling Green. The opening reception will be held on Friday, May 2nd from 5-8pm, hosted by Sea Lion Studio, 182 S. Main Street. Exhibition hours are Friday 5-8pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm. Several works will also be exhibited Friday and Saturday evening from 8-12.

A LINKS map is available for viewers to take a self-guided tour. Many works explore downtown Bowling Green. Others use city parks, country areas, and little-known spaces throughout the city limits as sites for the work. On Friday evening during the opening, a LINKS shuttle bus will physically link the sites, taking the public to the artworks located outside of the downtown area. Pick up for the LINKS shuttle will be at Sea Lion Studio, which will serve as the LINKS headquarters for the entire weekend. Maps for the self guided tour will available at the Sea Lion Studio as well other popular downtown locations.

This project is the culmination of the Technology, Space, & Public Art course taught by professors Heather Elliott and Michelle Illuminato. 20 students use a variety of art forms including photography, sculpture, performance, installation, and digital media in the creation of the 15 LINKS artworks:
