More Colombe Marcasiano Pictures

October 29, 2012

Yesterday, to mark the end of her month-long residency at Lynden, Paris-based artist Colombe Marcasiano gave an artist talk about her work at the garden. Throughout her time here, Colombe temporarily installed and then deinstalled multiple works. For her talk she put up three pieces including the birdhouses pictured below.

Colombe Marcasiano, Lynden's first long term artist-in-residence is currently in the middle of her month-long stay at Lynden, and we wanted to post a preview of the work she's been doing.

Nohl Fellow Update

Nicholas Lampert, one of the Established artists awarded a 2011 Nohl Fellowship, collaborated with Dan S. Wang for a print in Zone of Contention: The U.S./Mexico Border at the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. The exhibition was curated by Xandra Eden, one of the jurors who selected the 2011 Nohl Fellows, and who became accquainted with Lampert's work during that process.

Return of the Rickey

June 27, 2012


As some visitors to the garden have noticed, George Rickey's Peristyle--Three Lines (1963-1964) has been absent from its perch on the patio by the pool for some time now. Because the "three lines" of Peristyle's title are moving parts, it was necessary to bring the sculpture indoors during the windiest months to avoid damage. But now (despite today's wind) the Rickey returns to its rightful location!
