Amanda Browder has been invited to Urbana-Champaign to create Chromotopia, a public art project in collaboration with the School of Art and Design and Stratton Elementary School.
Join us Friday, for a brown bag lunch in room 331 A+D, at noon.
On Saturday October 14, Amanda will be giving an artist talk at 9:00 am and a community sewing workshop from 10:00-3:00pm at Stratton Academy of the Arts, 902 N. Randolph in Champaign. This event is open to the public, you are invited to donate fabric, attend the talk, and participate in the beginning stages of this project. Amanda will return in March 2018 for the installation at Stratton Academy of the Arts, a workshop in the Link Gallery, and a George A. Miller lecture about the project at the Spurlock Museum.
Amanda Browder currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York producing large-scale fabric installations for building exteriors and other public sites. Browder’s public art projects aim to give a voice to the community via collaborative contemporary art practices. Her work attempts to make the separation between audience and artist less clear, thereby empowering the viewer to feel like the artist, and to feel pride in the finished piece.
