Michelle Westmark Wingard “The Afterlife Of Objects And Places”

Lobby Gallery, Second Floor

July 13 – August 12, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, July 13, 6-8pm
Artist Talk: Thursday, August 9, 5:30-8pm

Inspired by her grandfather’s experiences in WWII, Michelle Westmark Wingard’s works in this series explore how objects can simultaneously provide proof of the past while still only yielding the meaning of the past when stories accompany them. By revisiting history, placing it in a new context, a contemporary dialog with the past emerges; one that informs the original story in a way that changes it and allows the past to evolve as well.
