Family WS_Hybridity

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult.

The collaborative work of our Art Drop-in students inspired this workshop. In art terms, hybridity is the blending of mediums and cultural ideas, and it underlies the experiential learning in many of our education programs. In this workshop, we’ll experiment by combining one student’s interest in origami with another’s in sewing, and we’ll see what happens when we merge these mediums.

More about our weekly Art Drop-in here.

Ceramic Planters with Katheryn Corbin

A Ceramics Workshop with Katheryn Corbin

Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed.

Make a ceramic planter for spring flowers using coil building techniques, red clay slip, and surface decoration. Draw your inspiration from Lynden’s acres or mementos brought from home. Planters will be fired at Lynden and ready for pick-up in about ten days, or you can join our Spring Sawdust Firing for a subtle, shining finish. Beginners welcome.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for studio work as well as the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting.

About Katheryn Corbin
Katheryn Corbin is a painter, potter, and figure sculptor. Pots and figures have both been a part of Corbin's studio practice and teaching. Drawing and painting are important elements in each discipline, and her clay pieces are informed by the complementary processes of working with clay as vessel and as figure. Corbin is interested in historical developments in clay and variations across cultures, and she often explores different firing techniques and glaze surfaces. She has taught at all levels from elementary school through adult at the Evanston Arts Center in Evanston, IL; the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI; the Milwaukee Art Museum; the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design; and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Women's Speaker Series: Ariel Lawhon, March 7, 2019

Fee: $23/$18 members - includes an autographed copy of I Was Anastasia, refreshments, and admission to the sculpture garden (come early to stroll the grounds). Register by phone at 414-446-8794.

Margy Stratton, founder and executive producer of Milwaukee Reads produces this series of events featuring writers of particular interest to women.

Lynden Sculpture Garden's Women's Speaker Series and Boswell Books welcome Ariel Lawhon, author of I Was Anastasia, to the Lynden Sculpture Garden, Thursday, March 7, 7 pm. For more information on upcoming Women's Speaker Series Events, click here.

About I Was Anastasia

Ariel Lawhon, a rising star in historical suspense, unravels the extraordinary twists and turns in Anna Anderson's fifty-year battle to be recognized as Anastasia Romanov. Is she the beloved daughter, revered icon, and Russian grand duchess or is she an imposter, liar, and the thief of another woman's legacy?

Countless others have rendered their verdict. Now it is your turn.

Russia, July 17, 1918: Under direct orders from Vladimir Lenin, Bolshevik secret police force Anastasia Romanov, along with the entire imperial family, into a damp basement in Siberia, where they face a merciless firing squad. None survive. At least that is what the executioners have always claimed.

Germany, February 17, 1920: A young woman bearing an uncanny resemblance to Anastasia Romanov is pulled shivering and senseless from a canal. Refusing to explain her presence in the freezing water or even acknowledge her rescuers, she is taken to the hospital where an examination reveals that her body is riddled with countless, horrific scars. When she finally does speak, this frightened, mysterious young woman claims to be the Russian grand duchess.

As rumors begin to circulate through European society that the youngest Romanov daughter has survived the massacre at Ekaterinburg, old enemies and new threats are awakened. With a narrative that is equal parts The Talented Mr. Ripley and Memento, Lawhon wades into the most psychologically complex and emotionally compelling territory: the nature of identity itself.

The question of who Anna Anderson is and what actually happened to Anastasia Romanov creates a saga that spans fifty years and touches three continents. This thrilling saga is every bit as moving and momentous as it is harrowing and twisted.

About the Author

Ariel Lawhon is a critically acclaimed author of historical fiction. She is the author of The Wife the Maid and the Mistress, Flight of Dreams, and I Was Anastasia. Her books have been translated into numerous languages and have been Library Reads, One Book One County, and Book of the Month Club selections. She is the co-founder of SheReads.org and lives in the rolling hills outside Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband, four sons, black Lab, and a deranged Siamese cat. Both pets are, thankfully, girls.

The 40 acres that house the Lynden collection of monumental outdoor sculpture are also home to many birds, insects, frogs, mammals, and plants. Join art educator Claudia Orjuela the second Tuesday of each month for hands-on art making and all-senses-engaged exploration of the world at Lynden.

Entanglement
Thursday, March 21, 2019 - 9 am-2 pm
Ages: 6-15
Fee: $45/$35 members
Advance registration required. Register by phone at 414-446-8481.

Entanglement could be defined as the interconnectedness among materials, people, animals, plants, and objects. We’ll become entangled with Lynden’s large, architectural sculptures as we experience them through movement, writing, and drawing, reacting to these works as objects and to the environments in which they’re placed. In the studio, we’ll transform these experiments into a series of layered works. We’ll print images over writings and we will silk-screen mono-prints that map our movements.

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden.

Join Ellen Goldberg and Hugo Rivera, of Meadmore Studios LLC, and Jonathan Lippincott, author of Large Scale, for a gallery talk in conjunction with our current exhibition, Clement Meadmore: The Models. Lippincott will place Meadmore’s work in the context of his contemporaries and will talk about the artist’s deep involvement in the process of making the large-scale works. He will be joined by Goldberg and Rivera for an informal conversation about the artist, his love of jazz, and his legacy. A reception follows.

About the Speakers

Ellen Goldberg
Ellen Goldberg is the trustee of the Clement Meadmore Foundation that was set up on Clement Meadmore’s death, and the president of Meadmore Sculptures LLC. She and Meadmore met in 1969 when they worked together on designs at Kulicke Frames in New York. When Meadmore was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Goldberg took over the management of Meadmore Sculptures and helped the artist with his galleries and exhibitions. Since Meadmore’s death, all the profits from the sale of sculptures has gone to needy jazz musicians. A total of one million dollars has been given to multiple organizations and institutions of higher education: to the Jazz Foundation of America and through them to the Dizzy Gillespie Memorial Fund at Englewood Hospital in New Jersey; to the Juilliard School of Music and the Manhattan School of Music to endow scholarships; and to Oberlin, the New School, and Rutgers University.
 
Hugo Rivera
Hugo Rivera is the field manager for Meadmore Studios LLC and is responsible for approving all sculptures that are fabricated or restored. He worked with Meadmore in his studio loft apartment and with the fabricators who made the sculptures. Rivera also participated in the many shows featuring Meadmore’s work.

Jonathan Lippincott
Jonathan Lippincott studied studio art and art history at Swarthmore College, graduating in 1989. During the next few years, he worked at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts as a cook and handyman, at the Yale University Art Gallery as an art handler, and as a dessert baker in Providence, RI. He moved to New York City in 1993 to begin work in publishing, and a year later joined Farrar, Straus and Giroux, where he is now design manager. Since 2000 he has also worked independently as art director and designer on a range of illustrated books about architecture, landscape, and fine art. His primary client has been Library of American Landscape History, where he now also serves as assistant director. He is the author of Large Scale: Fabricating Sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s, and the recently published monograph, Robert Murray: Sculpture.
