About the Event
In a dynamic visual and auditory presentation, Leisa Rich will trace the history of the ways in which installation art has fulfilled many roles in the human experience. Tracing an historical timeline from ritualistic, spiritual and astrological early traditions, to politicized commentary, and the democratized, broad outreach installation art is creating today, Leisa will take participants on a journey into this inclusive art form. BIOGRAPHY Leisa Rich is an experimental visual artist who transforms materials in unique ways via dyeing, painting, melting, sculpting, heat transfer, embroidery, 3D printing, laser cutting, resin and more. Rich has Master of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, and Bachelor of Education in Art degrees, and has exhibited in notable museums and galleries. She is a published author. Rich has taught art for 48 years. Rich’s works are in the permanent collections of Delta Airlines Inc., Hilton Hotels, Inc., Emory Healthcare/Women’s Health, Kamm Foundation, Dallas Museum of Art, University of Texas, University of North Texas, The Works: Atlanta, and in international private collections. In October 2020, in the middle of political upheaval and Covid, Rich virtually purchased a 96-year-old farmhouse on three acres on a rural St. Lawrence River island accessible only by ferry, and moved back to Canada after decades living, teaching, and exhibiting in the U.S.
