In conjunction with the major exhibition, Pattern: Follow the Rules, Alyson Shotz installed her significant work, Geometry of Light, in the Alan and Rebecca Ross Education Wing. This work is made of various sized plastic lenses, mirrored beads and fishing line. Installed in a window filled space, the work transforms visually over the course of the day, responding to light, weather, and time of day. This is an optically spectacular artwork and Shotz has reworked it to render it site specific for the museum.

Pattern: Follow the Rules is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Alison Gass, Curator of Contemporary Art. Generous support is provided by MSU Federal Credit Union. Additional funding is provided by the MSU Broad’s general exhibitions fund.
