The Egg Harbor Public Arts Initiative announces the opening of the Lawton Gallery’s exhibition, “Museum of Natural Inspiration: Artists Explore the Richter Collection.” This exhibit is collaboration between the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay’s Lawton Gallery, the University’s Center for Biodiversity, and features artists who have created artwork inspired by the Richter Museum of Natural History’s collection of specimens. This exhibit is in a true partnership of art and science.

The exhibit opened with a free public reception on Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 4PM to 7PM, which included a special presentation by the Open-Door Bird Sanctuary. The artwork on display is on loan to the Donald & Carol Kress Pavilion from University Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Lawton Gallery.

This exhibition will remain on display until Spring 2020. It is the hope that by displaying the works in Door County, it will further broaden year-long celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Center for Biodiversity.

EGGS-PHRASTIC WRITING!

A Special Art/Speaks EGGStravaganza Creative Lab

20 Kuhns, Jeanne.Serenity Bridge YogaThe practice of using words to comment on a piece of visual art—ekphrasis—is an ancient one. One of the earliest and most commonly cited forms of ekphrasis occurs in The Iliad, when Homer provides a long and discursive account of the elaborate scenes embossed on the shield of Achilles. Contemporary literature provides many fine examples of ekphrastic writing. Art/Speaks is a long-running Write On program encouraging people to write in response to art at local galleries.

We take a unique spin on this literary tradition, with this special edition of Art/Speaks, in collaboration with the Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor. EGGS-Phrastic Writing will inspire participants to write in response to one of the many eggs on display throughout the village of Egg Harbor.

This program is free and open to all ages.
