Writing In Nature With Lisa Huffaker

April 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

The shift of seasons, year after year, means the natural landscape provides ever-changing inspiration for artistic expression. Whether honing the precision of observational description or threading the needle of metaphor, writers of every skill level and style can use nature writing as a practice for experimentation, development and pleasure. Join Teaching Artist in Residence Lisa Huffaker for a thoughtful morning of writing, sharing and reflection.

Note: Writing In Nature will include moving through areas that are sometimes minimally affected by the conditions of the weather, and uneven surfaces. The walk and workshop will take place rain or shine (severe weather excluded).

Lisa Huffaker creates poetry, collage, and assemblage. She is a frequent visiting artist at the Nasher Sculpture Center, a recent C3 Visiting Artist at the Dallas Museum of Art, and creator of White Rock Zine Machine, a micropublishing project offering artist’s books through sculptural vending machines. Her poetry appears or is forthcoming in 32 Poems, Diode, Spillway, THRUSH, Tupelo Quarterly, and elsewhere. Her multimedia installation, Code Room, is currently on view at Ro2 Art. Her book in progress, a collage/erasure transformation of an antifeminist marriage manual written in 1963, was recently featured at TU Delft and Cornell Tech’s 3rd Workshop on Obfuscation.
