Join Lanesboro Arts in welcoming artist Sequoia Hauck as the Lanesboro Artist in Residence at a Welcome Potluck on Tuesday, September 19th from 6 – 7 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. Over a shared meal, Sequoia will share examples of past work as well as discuss the project they’ll be working on during their residency. Sequoia will share how community members can participate in the residency events, and answer any questions about their work. Bring a dish to share!
During their residency, Sequoia plans to install a cloth river installation that will invite the community to remember and reconnect with the ancestor water. They will offer opportunities to contemplate and explore the personal and collective meanings of water through both conversation and artistic elaboration on the installation.
