DiverseWorks commissioned sculptor Tony Feher to create an interactive installation with a very specific purpose: consider how his work might relate to live performance. The resulting ''Tony Feher: Free Fall'' combines art, dance, music and language with several area choreographers, composers and writers, each chosen by Feher, coming into the gallery to create new work in response to the installation and to each other's efforts. DiverseWorks Executive Director Elizabeth Dunbar says the ''Free Fall'' installation ''exemplifies DiverseWorks' commitment to working with artists in all stages of their careers to create new works, explore new forms and break new ground. This multidisciplinary collaborative project marks a first for Feher, an established artist of notable reputation. It is inspiring to work with an artist like Tony, who at the height of his career is bravely willing to step outside of his comfort zone and take artistic risk. This is exactly what DiverseWorks hopes to encourage.''
