Spartanburg Art Museum (SAM) presents

Jonathan Brilliant


an exhibition of contemporary site-specific installation

May 17 - August 5 2018 | Tues-Sat 10am-5pm Sun 1-5pm 

Jonathan Brilliant began his "Goldsworthy of the coffee shop" project in 2006, utilizing a coffee shop as his natural environment and objects such as wooden stirrers and cardboard sleeves as his materials. ​A recipient of the South Carolina Arts Commission Visual Arts Fellow award in 2012, Brilliant has created large site specific installations using these most mundane of everyday disposable materials.

To see more of Jonathan's work, visit his website.
