    Kevin Titzer is currently the Spring Fellow at PlySpace, an artist residency program of the Muncie Arts and Culture Council. "Nowhere To Be And All Day To Get There" Is the fifth installment of an ongoing project started at the end of 2017 in which Titzer traveled to different communities, such as Guadalajara, Mexico; Bloomington, Indiana; and Quebec, Canada, to create art from local resources. Through the process of scavenging materials and meeting people in the region, he worked to take in the feel of each place and its history. Titzer says, "Often different communities value and discard different things. This makes each installment unique and couldn't be created in any other place or time."

    The installation at PlySpace uses found, donated, and scavenged materials from around the area. Some of the found-object sculptures and structures will have interactive elements, like electronic movement or sound, activated by the viewer. Titzer says his final exhibition is a mix of his own experiences and reactions, "I'm left with an amalgam of images that filters through the studio. What emerges is an impressionistic view of my time spent in a specific region. In this respect, the art often reflects aspects of that community, but isn't a one to one portrait per se."

    Titzer has been working with Ball State School of Art Students in the 3D Foundations courses to explore the use of found objects in sculpture. The two classes he has worked with will be contributing found-object bird sculptures to the final exhibition, each designed and crafted by a different student.

    Kevin Titzer was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana in the United States, although he has been based in the Saguenay region of Quebec for the last nine years. He has been exhibiting professionally in art galleries for twenty years and his work has been shown in Canada, Mexico, Japan, UK, and across the United States.
