Be in the Wildlife: Process/Experiments/Space & Student Works/Experience
Be in the Wildlife is a month long online exhibition showing process, experiments and other works inspired by Sharon Lee Hart’s artist residency in Joshua Tree National Park. The photo-based works represent a range of perspectives on the park including those of local elementary students, park employees, residents, as well as the artist’s, and connects back to photography’s tangled relationship to space, memory, and time. This gallery also includes artworks made by local 4th grade students and images of their experience in the park.
The in-process version of Be in the Wildlife will be accessible online at here throughout the Big Read month (9/12/20-10/12/20). An in-person exhibition will show final works at the Black Rock Art Gallery in Yucca Valley, CA in 2021.
This is a program of the NEA Big Read Morongo Basin presented by Arts Connection in collaboration with Joshua Tree National Park's Black Rock Art Gallery. The NEA Big Read aims to build community and inspire conversation through the joy of sharing a good book. The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
