A Living River by Anna Metcalfe

In this show, I investigate how my art practice can be a catalyst for social change. Reflecting a concern for environmental issues: food systems, water, and agriculture, my work bridges placemaking and event-based art with a material focus on clay. A Living River presents a collaboration with Wilderness Inquiry in 2013-2014, including drawn and written reflection from Folwell Middle School and Upper Mississippi Academy students.

This installation was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
