The SCAD Museum of Art presents “Reminiscent of Time Passed,” a solo exhibition by Gamaliel Rodríguez, featuring recent works on paper, as well as “Figure 1737,” a 45-foot ballpoint pen drawing commissioned by the SCAD Museum of Art. “Figure 1737” depicts Fort Benning, Georgia, and its surrounding areas, created from memory. Rodríguez was stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia, in the late ’90s during his service as an infantryman with the U.S. Army. As a service member, he honed his skills in navigation, investigation and map reading — knowledge that he later translated into his visual art practice.

Rodríguez’s nondescript industrial landscapes of Puerto Rico and U.S. territories are gleaned from his own personal experiences, travel and imagination. These haunting monochromatic images in ballpoint, acrylic inks and Sharpie markers are at first specific and familiar to visitors, while also unexpected and extraordinary in their scale and design.

This exhibition coincides with the national Blue Star Museums program, which allows active duty military and their families free entry to participating museums from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

‘Reminiscent of Time Passed’ is curated by guest curator Aaron Levi Garvey.
