Things With Wings
Stop by the Liu Institute at UBC on July 27 for the opening night event of Charmaine Lurch's art installation, also featuring Nicky Grunfeld, our volunteer beekeeper and UBC Farm intern:
Charmaine Lurch is a Toronto-based artist whose work integrates mixed media and recycled objects to maximize the potential of metal wiring as a powerful means of expression. In Things With Wings, she brings wild bees into the popular imagination through her larger than life wire sculptures, evoking the relative invisibility of wild bees and highlighting the tremendous role they play in sustaining our ecosystem.
Installation: July 28 to September 21, 2012
Gallery hours: Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
OPENING NIGHT: July 27 2012, 6:00 pm
Join us for an evening highlighting bees and pollination through art, science, and community initiatives.
With researcher Amanda Van Haga, UBC Farm intern Nicky Grunfeld,
artist Mary Bennett, and poet Kevan Cameron.
Light refreshments to be served!
Liu Institute, The University of British Columbia, 6476 NW Marine Drive, Vancouver
