Art + Lunch = Food for Thought
Tuesday, September 27, 12-1 p.m.
Arts and Humanities Building 121
Join Curator Kelly Lindner for a lunchtime discussion of the current exhibition Walczak & Heiss: SHAKER at the Jacki Headley University Art Gallery. Free and Open to the Public.
Event: Lively discussion about local agriculture, those crazy looking nut-harvesting machines, and how art can feed your brain. Bring your own lunch. Art, beverages, and cookies provided.
Artist team Walczak & Heiss makes work that responds to the unique characteristics of a particular place. In SHAKER, a magical yet seldom seen nut-harvesting machine becomes a sculptural form in the gallery. As visitors walk through the space, the machine is at first unrecognizable, perversely distorted through digital manipulation. Yet, from one singular vantage point the piece pulls into focus. In this spot, perception and function collapse as the shaker defies its grand scale to crack a single nut.
