Morphing of Visitor Art: “Stretch #1″ by Evan Penny

September 1st, 2009

Evan Penny’s Stretch #1 from 2003 is one of the most popular works at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Visitors love to stare at Stretch’s huge stretched silicone face (almost 3 meters long!) and peer into his big watery eyes. They also love to draw it. Check out these visitor sketches of this popular sculpture. Visit the AGO’s 5th floor to see it for yourself.

    You can tell how interested people are in the Evan Penny work.
    The care and time they have taken to draw their interpretation of the work is a tribute to the artist’s ability to engage viewers (of all ages and drawing experience!)
