Wayfinding: Thomas “Detour” Evans
Thursday, October 8, 2020
1:30 – 2:30 p.m. MST
This event series will be hosted virtually via Zoom.
The Wayfinding series connects RMCAD students to accomplished local creatives including our very own faculty and staff. This edition of the college’s ongoing series celebrates the creative endeavors of the artists and designers teaching and working at RMCAD.
Thomas Evans, a.k.a. Detour, is an all-around creative specializing in large scale public art, interactive visuals, portraiture, immersive spaces, and creative directing. His focus is to create work where art and innovation meet. A born collaborator and “military brat,” Detour pulls from every conceivable experience that shapes his landscapes and perspectives. Explaining Detour’s work is no easy task, as ongoing experimentations in visual art, music, and interactive technologies have his practice continually expanding. With his ever-evolving approach to art, Detour’s focus is on expanding customary views of creativity and challenging fine-art paradigms by mixing traditional mediums with new approaches—all the while opening up the creative process from that of a singular artist, to one that thrives on multi-layered collaboration and viewer participation. Detour continues to work in many mediums while now teaching others aspiring artists how to navigate the rough waters of the art industry.
