Presented by the Catalyst series of the Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA), associate professor of Visual Arts Lynn Cazabon will discuss in-progress projects centered on the Baltic Sea, produced during her time as a Fulbright Scholar in Liepāja, Latvia earlier this year. Her work there focuses on the intimate and complex interconnection between the natural environment and the people who live within it and resulted in a series of portraits of Liepāja residents set against the Baltic Sea and displayed with a quote from each participant about the role the sea plays in their lives. A second series of works focuses on the Baltic Sea itself and the aftermath of military operations that have occurred there. Professor Cazabon will also speak generally about her experiences living and teaching in a foreign country in the New Media Program at Liepāja University.
Lynn Cazabon is an artist who works in a number of different media and teaches courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels in the Department of Visual Arts. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in museums and galleries for the past 20 years and has been featured in numerous books and exhibition catalogs. Over the past several years, her work has intersected with cross-disciplinary themes including a dynamic visualization of space debris tracking data, an extensive documentation of wild plants in urban environments, and a series of non-traditional portraits of inmates at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women.
Admission is free.
