Writing the Great Outdoors with Lisa Huffaker
November 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Flora and fauna have played muse to artists and writers since the dawn of humanity. From serenity to surprise, tempestuous waters to bucolic pastures, natural surroundings provide an endless supply of sensorial experiences to contemplate, connect with and respond to. In this afternoon workshop, join artist Lisa Huffaker as she ventures out into the landscape, rain or shine, to embrace the beauty and inspiration of the great outdoors.
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.
