Swing by every Saturday from noon - 5PM during Lizzy’s stay at ON::VIEW Artist Residency to say hello and check out her progress on her project. Visit our Residency page for other important dates!
As the level of the sea slowly rises – I begin to question time. I think about what does it mean to be slow? How does something so subtle and slow creep up and effect land, humanity and future generations? These questions can be examined through poetic responses from the community and creative output.
My ON::VIEW residency project will convey and express not only my response to, but visual data of sea level rise. Sea level rise is one of the biggest threats to coastal cities, and Savannah is subject to many detriments due to climate change. In the four weeks at Sulfur Studios, I will utilize the space to work on a new series of paintings that address these issues.
Funding for Lizzy’s project has been made possible in part by the 2018 DIY Fund from Meow Wolf.
