As a virtual offering for Austin Museum Day, artist-in-residence Merideth Hillbrand will host a discussion on inspiration and process for “Some Fields the Track Runs Through,” currently on display at the Center. Dive into the ideas behind the art which takes cues from botany, architecture and poetry. Hillbrand explores the relationships between German botany photographer Karl Blossfeldt, fantasy architecture and concrete poetry.
During this one-hour lecture and workshop, Hillbrand will describe how objects can become imbedded with ideas for the future and influence environments and speech. Participants will be led through a concrete poetry writing exercise by the artist.
This event is free, but registration is required. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link prior to the event.
You can see Hillbrand’s exhibit through the grand windows of the McDermott Learning Center for a couple more weeks, or visit in person on Austin Museum Day (with free admission) where the exhibit can be entered for one day only. Capacity is limited and face coverings are required.
