Virtual Artist Talk: Heather Hart
New York-based artist Heather Hart will present a virtual guest lecture Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 2 pm.
A visual artist who works in a variety of media including interactive and participatory installation, drawing, collage, and painting, Hart’s work has been exhibited worldwide including at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia; the Gantt Center in Charlotte, N.C.; The Brooklyn Museum; and the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park. She studied at Princeton and received her MFA from Rutgers University.
As part of Hart’s virtual visit, Fine Art seniors will participate in a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, an ongoing component of Black Lunch Table, a project that developed through a collaboration between Hart and fellow artist Jina Valentine. According to Black Lunch Table, “at each edit-a-thon we provide a list of suggested artists to add or edit, with particular focus on Black artists who have worked within or are local to the host institution’s community and are currently under-documented on Wikipedia.”
A link to Hart’s presentation will be provided closer to the event date. Member of the public who wish to link to the presentation may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
