“Mobile Event Viewing Apparatuses” is a series of interactive sculptures by Adam Wohlwend that explores the ways in which art is experienced by the art viewer. Each unique unit provides individuals with the means to navigate The Paseo as a mobile piece of art created to challenge perception through visual, audible, physical, and social extensions.
Adam Wohlwend is a U.S. sculptor who creates interactive mobile units that emphasize the importance of the art viewer’s role in the art world. As a first generation college graduate, Wohlwend embodies both a blue-collar, Mid-Western work ethic, and a formal education in the arts. He completed a BFA from the University of Iowa, and an MFA in the sculpture program at the University of New Mexico. These two contrasting aspects of the artist’s life place Wohlwend in the unique position to consider widening the scope of audience in terms of contemporary art. Wohlwend was raised in an industrial urban area on the Eastern border of Iowa by a family of tradespeople who approach life with a do-it-yourself mindset.
