Open Studio with JTHAR resident Patrick D. Wilson
Saturday July 31, 4-6pm
8321 Via Rocosa, Joshua Tree, CA
Please wear a mask.
Patrick D. Wilson is a sculptor and assistant professor of art at Western Michigan University's Gwen Frostic School of Art. He works to express the cultural collision between expanding population centers and their varied frontiers through metal, wood, and fabric sculptures that employ the language of urban and nomadic architecture. As part of his JTHAR residency, Patrick proposes to build a series of wood and fabric structures for the desert environment that will be in direct dialog with the specific terrain of Joshua Tree National Park. The purpose of this inquiry is to examine the way humans and the environment are in dialog and co-constructed by their respective creative and destructive capabilities.
