Artist Adam Manley to come to Lanesboro

Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

LANESBORO, Minn. - Mixed Media Artist Adam Manley will be Lanesboro Arts Center’s 39th Artist in Residence: May 17-31, 2014, working on a public art project involving place and history and architecture. PUBLIC INVITED to participate on Saturday, May 24 in downtown Lanesboro 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m.

From Portland, Maine, Adam Manley will be Artist in Residence with Lanesboro Arts Center May 17-31, 2014. Manley’s work is about how we interact with and understand our surroundings. “I see our sense of place as linked inextricably to the familiar objects, structures, architecture, and infrastructure of our surroundings,” says Manley. While in Lanesboro, he will be creating a structure with materials and objects found in ‘our place’ of Lanesboro and southeast Minnesota. He is inviting the public to interact with the structure that he has created by entering it one at a time, and providing a series of documentations of themselves, and their own connection with agricultural life, architecture, history, or pursuits. This public interaction will take place on Saturday, May 24, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. in downtown Lanesboro, in front of the AceTek building (formerly Ace Communications).

Visitors will be invited to write, record sound, and photograph themselves at the time of the interaction, and all of this documentation will be compiled as a part of the project. “I’m interested in getting as much input as possible, and this invitation is open to all participants, no matter how connected they are with these things.” The artist hopes that he can glean some inkling of the importance and relevance of agriculture and its vernacular architecture and objects through this collection of information. “It is my hope that the objects I make will instill a mix of emotions in people. Many of my most recent works contain elements of fear, safety, watchfulness, wonder, humor, and confusion simultaneously. My goal is that the objects themselves will offer the viewer an opportunity to rethink his or her own comfort zones and senses of place.” For more information about Adam Manley’s project, contact Sara Baskett at Lanesboro Arts Center, 507-467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org.

Trained in furniture making, design, construction, and general building of things, Adam Manley creates human scale sculptures and objects that are meant to speak of and interact with the lan .....
