UNT professor's neon light sculpture acquired by Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery

The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum has aquired a light sculpture by Alicia Eggert, an associate professor and coordinator for the sculpture program in the UNT College of Visual Arts and Design. The artwork is the second edition of Eggert’s “This Present Moment,” a sign sculpture that cycles through the statements “this present moment used to be the unimaginable future” and “this moment used to be the future” in a flashing neon pink hue before turning off completely for a short period of time. “This Present Moment” will debut at the Renwick Gallery as part of the museum’s 50th anniversary exhibition in 2022.
