Hannah Duron '15: UPP Teachers Workshop

Last week I had the pleasure of tagging along with Public Humanities Community Fellow Holly Ewald to document and help facilitate her most recent project: the 2015 UPP Arts Teachers Workshop.  The day and a half long program was held in the cheerfully decorated library of the Reservoir Avenue School and attended by some 15 teachers, artists, researchers and scientists with a wide variety of ages, talents and experience.

Opening Reception: An Old Tree Becomes a Sculpture: BitterSweet

Nightingale-Brown House

Opening Reception

Sculptor Gail Whitsitt-Lynch has created "BitterSweet" from the wood of a stately elm that stood in the garden at the Nightingale-Brown house from 1920 to 2014. Although the tree is gone, its life continues in this dynamic carving. The exhibit explores the evolution of material through the artist's process to the finished sculpture, BitterSweet, and includes a graphic history of the life cycle of this singular tree.
