Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (December 4, 2021)—The Miller Art Museum in downtown Sturgeon Bay is excited to host a free lecture given by Nancy Aten and Dan Collins of Landscapes of Place on Saturday December 11, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. Titled “Re-Meandering,” their talk will focus on the ecological restoration work at Crossroads at Big Creek and how it has influenced their artwork currently on display in the Museum’s Wildlife Biennial XX, on display through Thursday, December 30. The event will take place in the main gallery of the museum at 107 S. 4th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay; admission is free but donations are welcomed and appreciated.
“We strive for a wholeness to our lives that supports our efforts to have a restorative effect on the earth and in our community,” says Nancy Aten. “Our monotypes are inevitably about natural places we know or wild places we hope to restore. In between printing episodes, we are collecting ideas, experiences and stories we want to convey in our monotypes, and a leaf or image or grains of soil from these wild places to use or inspire us.”
The presentation will also be streamed virtually live on Facebook @millerartmuseum.
The museum is located at 107 S. 4th Avenue inside the Door County Library in downtown Sturgeon Bay. Hours are Monday 10am – 7pm and Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 5pm. The museum is closed Sundays. Admission is free of charge but freewill donations are encouraged; an elevator is available to access galleries on the second floor Ruth Morton Miller Mezzanine. Proof of vaccination is not required for entry into the museum; masks are strongly recommended and visitors are asked to practice social distancing.
