Watie White Artist Reception

This event is no longer on sale.

Sunday October 15

11:00 AM  –  1:00 PM

Watie White, Omaha painter and printmaker, melds his studio-based painting and printmaking practice with socially-engaged public works that bring together communities and organizations at the intersection of art and social change.

In this exhibition, White is using stanzas from Nebraskan poets' writings about our relationship with nature. He has carved these stanzas into logs and fallen trees along Fontenelle Forest's boardwalk, creating an exhibit space that requires moving throughout the forest and seeking out the poetry.

The full poems, along with photographs of the carvings by Alex Wiles will be on display in the Baright Gallery at the Nature Center. A map and booklet will accompany the exhibition to allow visitors to find all the art pieces. Slowly, nature will take its course and living things like insects and fungi will eliminate poetry, allowing the art to become one with nature.

This program is free with registration.
