tallgrass-livestream5-5x8-5The Department of Art at Bethany College in collaboration with the Tallgrass Artist Residency will be live-streaming a symposium featuring a series of talks by resident Tallgrass artists on Saturday October 1, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Mingenback Art Center in Lindsborg, Kansas.

The goal of the Tallgrass Artist Residency program is to spread awareness of the prairie as an ecosystem worth protecting by inviting artists from diverse communities to contribute their voices to a conversation about place. Artists are chosen from communities located in what has historically been typified as prairie, to participate in a series of two-week long residency periods, culminating in a group exhibition and live-streamed artist symposium.

Representing a broad range of media and approaches, artist speakers will include, Lisa Grossman, Lexi Janezic, Casey Whittier, Amanda Maciuba, Julie Nocent-Vigil, Ahram Park, Rachel Kauff, Mary Gordon, and M12/Richard Saxton.

Refreshments will be provided. This event is free and open to the entire community.
