A Campus Art Walk with Harrell Fletcher, Molly Sherman, and Nolan Calisch

Monday, August 18, 2014
UPDATED TIME/PLACE: We will meet at the parking lot gate of the Farm at 6 pm

Join us for the second Campus Art Walk with Artists-in-Residence Public Doors and Windows, August 18, 6-8 pm

In his art practice, Harrell Fletcher often begins with the following question: where does a museum end and the outside world begin? The Institute for the Arts and Sciences at UCSC is in the process of redefining what an academic museum can be. We have invited Fletcher and his collaborators, Molly Sherman and Nolan Calisch—who together make art as Public Doors and Windows— to share their ideas of how to blur the lines between art exhibition spaces, communities in which they are embedded, and the world.

To begin doing this, the artists are working with students, faculty, and staff to plan 2+ hour walk on the UCSC campus on August 18

This walk will particularly focus on the UCSC Farm. The Farm is the site of the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems, a research, education, and public service program at the University of California, Santa Cruz, dedicated to increasing ecological sustainability and social justice in the food and agriculture system. For this walk, Public Doors and Windows has asked current and former apprentices of the farm to take us to notable sites and developments on the 30 acre farm. Current apprentices will be asking former apprentices and mentors on the farm for their insights into what makes these places and happenings so significant.

Please join us for this experiential public walk. We will meet at the front gate of the Farm parking lot at 6pm. Wear shoes for hiking and bring water.
