The Miller Art Museum (MAM) will host a free lecture by Nancy Aten and Dan Collins of Landscapes of Place on Dec. 11, 10:30 am. Titled “Re-Meandering,” their talk will focus on the ecological restoration work at Crossroads at Big Creek and how it has influenced their artwork currently on display in MAM’s Wildlife Biennial XX. The event will take place in the main gallery of the museum; admission is free but donations are welcomed and appreciated. The presentation will be held in-person and streamed live on Facebook.
“We strive for a wholeness to our lives that supports our efforts to have a restorative effect on the earth and in our community,” said Nancy Aten. “Our monotypes are inevitably about natural places we know or wild places we hope to restore. In between printing episodes, we are collecting ideas, experiences and stories we want to convey in our monotypes, and a leaf or image or grains of soil from these wild places to use or inspire us.”
Masks are strongly recommended and visitors are asked to practice social distancing. For more information, call 920.746.0707 or visit millerartmuseum.org.
