Brought to you by a Homeschool Adventures volunteer organizer!

Description: Kick off the school year with a super cool exhibit at the Walker Art Center before it leaves!

Graffiti Nature–Still Mountains and Movable Lakes (2017–) presents a virtual ecosystem of exaggerated wildlife and plant forms. The work invites viewers to become participants as they physically alter, express themselves within, and ultimately become a part of the work. Visitors can scan and add their own drawn additions to images of reptiles, amphibians, insects, and other creatures that grow, consume one another, and disappear, creating a live ecosystem. As participants pause to contemplate their surroundings, their stillness encourages the growth of flowers and plants.

The collective’s works often celebrate life, the essential element of water, and the regenerating capacity of pristine nature. Through its need for active participation, Graffiti Nature dissolves the boundaries between artwork and viewer, ultimately heightening our awareness of the connections between people and their environment.

11:00 — Head up to the Graffiti Nature exhibit
