Event Details

This December 7th meet the British born, Chicago-based contemporary artist, MicheleStutts at 3:30 pm in room 275C.

Composed of found objects rich with history and seasoned by time, her work has integrated all of her artistic experiences. Her assemblage work often contains forgotten memories that have lost their original appearance and purpose, but have been reborn with a new aesthetic and meaning.

The current exhibit, Housebird and Beyond, is not synonymous with “birdhouse” but has the opposite meaning. Although both are human-crafted structures, birds find protection from harsh weather and predators in birdhouses, a place to nest and raise their young. In contract, housebird represents a constant state of isolation, anxiety, and financial insecurity.

There is a transition in the exhibition of the artist trapped expression in Housebird and Beyond into a free flowing, visual assemblage.
