Video and sculpture artist Dave Beck will be artist in residence in January 2012 at Lanesboro Arts Center


Tue, Jan 3rd, 2012
Posted in Arts & Culture

Coming soon! Video and sculpture artist Dave Beck will come to Lanesboro January 3 - 17, 2012, as Artist in Residence with the Lanesboro Arts Center. He will be working on a project examining the history of place, people, and culture-specifically our Norwegian roots in the region. From Menomonie, Wisc., Dave visited Lanesboro in November and started research at the Lanesboro Public Library and with some local residents; his initial investigations sparked his interest in many historical stories and events, including Olaf Tegin's Lock and Hair Wreaths. In creating his video and sculptural work, Dave uses digital technology (video and 3D animation), the arts, and historical events, coming together in an approachable product such as a film that community members can easily relate to. In culmination of Dave's residency project, he will return to Lanesboro for an Artist Talk and Presentation about his project; this free event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 18, 7 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre.

Dave Beck teaches art at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, after having taught at Clarkson University in New York for four years. He received his MFA in Sculpture & Extended Media at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an MA in Studio Art also at UW-Madison, and a BA in Studio Art & Ancient Studies at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions, from Spokane, WA to Philadelphia, PA. He has also completed several residencies, including one in at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts in Nebraska City, NE, where he created the Nebraska City Portrait Series. The best way to find out about his work is to visit his website and check out some of his 3D animation videos and sculptural projects: www.davebeck.org.
