Failure Round Robin with Pegi Christiansen

April 25, 2015 - 1:00pm - 2:30pm


Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. If you would like to be one of the 15 active participants, please email us at (and don't forget to put "Failure Round Robin" in the subject line).

Pegi Christiansen is an artist-in-residence at the Lynden Sculpture Garden. As part of her yearlong project, Distance, she is organizing a Failure Round Robin. Distance has emotional as well as physical qualities, and failure often makes people feel alone and adrift. Fifteen people will have five minutes each to describe a failure and its implications--Christiansen will start by sharing one of hers. This will be a low-tech, no PowerPoint event, but show-and-tell items to pass around are fine. Those who wish to listen are welcome. Refreshments will be served.

It is fortuitous that Robin Jebavy’s still life paintings of glassware will be in the gallery at the same time. Who hasn’t had the experience of breaking a window, someone’s treasured cup, or interpersonal glass? Jebavy will participate in the round robin and lead a tour of the sculpture garden following the Failure Round Robin at 3 pm.
