Art-in-Wilson Panel Discussion
March 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
This panel discussion delves into Beyond Boundaries, an art installation on display in the first floor of Wilson Library. Beyond Boundaries is co-created by students in Diane Willow’s course Art + Change: The Transformational Power of Art.
What distinguishes Beyond Boundaries is the time invested in researching and studying maps from the U of M’s John R. Borchert Map Library about the fact that the U of M campus lies on indigenous land. While working through the creative and artistic process, the artists also explored environmental versus man-made boundaries, and natural space versus human space. This panel session will give the audience a deeper understanding of the creative process and the resulting installation.
Panelists: Sean Connaughty and Diane Willow from the U of M Department of Art, Ryan Mattke and Deborah Ultan from the University Libraries, and student artists Jacquelyn Fay, Bryce Mason, Ellen Schillace, Ty Schwantz, and Aimee Sutherland.
The University Libraries has collaborated with the Department of Art for over 10 years to exhibit student and faculty work in the Libraries. The latest installation is a continuation of this amazing exchange. For more details about the collaboration and the artwork, we encourage you to take a look at the article by Russ White, New Student Artwork in Wilson Library.
