About Lovey Town
Founded in 2013 by the artist Michael Velliquette, Lovey Town is a miniature, mobile project space dedicated to the exhibition of small original artworks. Artists participate in the exhibition with their works, and in the form of paper cutouts made from their photographs. Lovey Town exists in multiple formats—through online photographic documentation, in print publications, as a physical exhibition space, and as a social practice where artists and audiences participate in the creation of a sculptural community.
During Lovey Town’s residency library patrons and the public will be invited to collaborate on a communal exhibition by creating small-scale works of art to fill a custom made miniature gallery space inside the Bubbler Room. Participants will also be invited to have their pictures taken and be made into small photographic paper dolls to populate the gallery space as the viewing audience.
