Artist's reception Sunday, October 17, 2pm

An installation of 3,000 origami cranes, photographic faces of 200 people, a few artists' books and other ephemera; re-connecting to people and the land, the birds, our planet, our journeys and our lives. Dedicated to the work being done to bring the whooping crane back from near extinction.

Clarissa Sligh is an artist who weaves together the personal, political and historical in a variety of media including photographs, prints, artists' books and text-based installations. She is a recipient of the International Center of Photography Infinity Award and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts in photography (1988) and the New York Foundation for the Arts in photography (1988 and 2000) and for artists' books (2005). 


This year Woodland Pattern celebrates 30 years of literary arts programming: visual arts, readings by national and regional writers, independent film and music. For three decades the creativity of women as administrators, visual artists, writers, editors, publishers, and musicians has played an important role in our mission: to be dedicated to the discovery, cultivation and presentation of contemporary literature and the arts.

 


This program is made possible with generous assistance from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation - Mary L. Nohl Fund
