The Power of Place: KU Alumni Artists

February 16 – June 30, 2019

Spencer Museum of Art
The University of Kansas

Lawrence, KS

The Power of Place considers profound understandings of place in the work
29 artists who received degrees from KU. Each artist compels the power of
hand making in some form, and addresses the power of place, whether it be
historical places; the spaces of a textile as place; sites or places of past or
current distress, trauma, or violence; place as an abstract idea; or place as
a visceral reality. The focus on place also explores the power of this place—
the KU campus and community—in shaping students who make art.

This exhibition is supported by KU Student Senate and the Linda Inman
Bailey Exhibitions Fund

In summer of 2017, Lisa was an artist-in-resident with the US Forest Service kayak rangers in Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness, Tongass National Forest, Alaska. The Voices of the Wilderness Program is modeled after the National Park’s AIR programs but pairs artists with wilderness specialists in the National Park Service, US Forest Service, or US Fish & Wildlife Service, in almost a dozen locations around Alaska. Lisa spent six days kayak camping in Endicott Arm Fjord with Ranger Chrissy, on her rounds monitoring campsites, noise and visual intrusions, wildlife, as well as boarding tour boats for educational talks. She came back with a wealth of photos, videos, paintings, a glimpse of what it takes to manage a place for “Wilderness Character,” and a whole new appreciation for ice!
