Penn State To Host Smoke Painter Rosemarie Fiore September 9

Penn State will welcome artist Rosemarie Fiore to the HUB Lawn from 2 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, September 9, for a smoke painting session.

Fiore will use lit, colored smoke to paint in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Penn State’s Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity. During the performance, Fiore will make three murals that will be displayed in the HUB through 2024.

“Smoke painting,” as Fiore calls it, is an art in which firework color smoke canisters release at differing intervals as she moves the machine across the canvas. She is well known for using various types of items to use as painting machines, such as lawnmowers, cars, floor polishers, and amusement park rides.

Fiore worked with Penn State School of Visual Arts students to make the spirographs and pyrographic tools she’ll use tomorrow during her performance, along with some of her own tools.

There will also be an exhibition inside the HUB Gallery for all to enjoy. It will feature many pieces of Fiore’s work over the last 10 years, and will be open before and after her show.
