In Colby’s second annual emerging artist exhibition, currents2, installation artist and University of Maine Professor of Art Sam van Aken creates a multimedia installation exploring his personal and artistic engagement with the 1976 Steven Spielberg film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

As part of a two-year project, van Aken recreates scenes and builds sculptural “sets” from the movie.
