Artist Lesley Dill will give a talk about her exhibition, Wilderness: Light Sizzles Around Me

The exhibition, Lesley Dill, Wilderness: Light Sizzles Around Me, represents the ongoing investigation into the voices and personas of the American past by the artist. For Dill, the voices grew from early America’s obsessions with divinity and deviltry, and on fears of the wilderness “out there” and inside us. The extremes of both shaped history and gave pulse and heat to the words of activists such as John Brown, Sojourner Truth, Anne Hutchinson, and Dred Scott. Join us for an artist talk on Thursday, November 16 at The Ulrich Museum. A reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. The artist will speak starting at 6 p.m. This free event takes place in the Beren Gallery, and everyone is invited.
