May 6, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 3, 2023

Minneapolis, Minnesota artist Liz Sexton creates sculptures that blur the line between the animal kingdom and human life. Working with paper mâché, a medium she prefers for its versatility and accessibility, Sexton creates large masks of fish, birds, and mammals that are meant to be worn. Accompanying these works are photographs and video depicting humans wearing these masks in natural, as well as urban, environments. The works often feature fauna that are facing threat, such as marine life, and sheds light on the displacement from their natural habitat that many animals experience as they are forced to live in our human world.
