Curator's Coffee -- Detonography: The Art of Explosion
In 1985, Evelyn Rosenberg developed a technique to make metal sculpture using explosives; a unique process that she called detonography.  This technique allows her to make large scale, monumental sculptures with intricate, complex details on the surface; and she says, "I like the idea of taking a destructive force and using it to make something that is beautiful."  The Museum has one of her pieces, entitled "Evolutionary Geoscape,"  proudly displayed in the Atrium. Come and hear about detonography and then see the artwork with the artist.

Evelyn Rosenberg has made over 45 public art works around the world; and she has had over 40 one person and group shows since 1969.  Her work has been documented in numerous magazine, newspaper, and television stories, including Smithsonian Magazine, Scientific American, Science News, American Artist, Nightline, the Today Show, and Colores.   In 2007, she won the New Mexico Governor's Award for Contributions to the Arts.  She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of New Mexico.
