Exhibiting Artist Talk: Ana Flores
June 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Shaman Ladders and Other Stories
Award-winning sculptor, ecologist, and writer Ana Flores creates works of art and installations that focus on the cultural narratives that help connect communities with landscapes. Her enduring interest in how geography shapes us comes from her own experience of displacement as a refugee from Cuba who came to the United States with her family. It was only when she settled in Charlestown, Rhode Island, in an area next to the sacred land of the Narragansett people, that she “began to reroot and find a sense of wholeness.” Inspired by mentors, such as forest stewards, gardeners, Narragansett elders and neighbors, Flores built a relationship with the land.
Join us for Ana’s exhibiting artist talk to learn how this deep connection to place and ecology transformed her into an ecological artist.
