Colombe Marcasiano is the first artist selected for a month-long residency at Lynden. She will arrive on September 27, 2012 and will spend the month of October onsite. Marcasiano’s sculpture practice, which often employs recycled wood and discarded and short-lived materials such as cardboard; her history of making site-specific temporary work (both indoors and out); and her interest in responding to different conditions make her an excellent first candidate for the residency. During her stay, she will create a temporary outdoor sculpture that will be unveiled at a reception on Sunday, 28 October 2012.

While at Lynden, Marcasiano will be connecting with the local community of artists, curators and art students, as well as the community served by the sculpture garden. Marcasiano will offer critiques and talks at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, and she will meet informally with visiting K-12 students (it is one of the goals of our education programs to introduce students to living artists and their processes). Members and daily visitors may encounter her on the grounds or in her workspace in the barn. Be sure to say hello!

The Lynden Sculpture Garden Residency Program is designed to enable artists to immerse themselves in Lynden’s sculpture collection, its landscape and the surrounding community for an extended period as they make temporary outdoor work. Our primary interest is in three-dimensional work, and in hosting artists who are working, as we are, at the intersection of art and nature.

This residency made possible in part with the generous support of the Cultural Service of the Consulate General of France in Chicago.
