And then I ... read about a tour of sculpture installations by Barbara Satterfield

Posted By on Mon, Aug 18, 2014 at 1:16 PM


Ceramicist Barbara Satterfield, one of the Arkansas Times' "Visionaries" in 2013, has announced the creation of a touring, interactive sculpture exhibit that will be installed in public places in Helena, Heber Springs, Dardanelle and Warren before the final exhibition at the Cox Creative Center in the River Market district. Her idea, she says, is to "connect everyday life experience with art."

With grants from the Mid-American Arts Alliance, the Arkansas Arts Council and Kickstarter, Satterfield has created "And then, I: Monuments to Pivotal Moments," in which women are invited to take part by sharing their own pivotal experiences on a website created for that purpose and by feedback to the sculptures themselves. The description from the MAA:

Each installation, placed in non-traditional locations in one town for two weeks, captures a pivotal moment when an event, comment, or revelation affects the figures involved. The installation locations are conducive to unhurried contemplation (hospital/clinic, library, and community/civic center or church). The installations are then displayed together for a final day at that town’s outdoor regional festival. Publicity and installation materials invite viewers to contribute responses that will be incorporated into a culminating exhibit. These audience contributions will include invitations to complete the phrase “And then I” by: 1) posting a selfie with the sculptures on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram at #ANDTHENI, 2) completing a comment card, 3) texting input to a QR code survey, 4) taking a survey card, and/or 5) mailing/emailing feedback to the project archives. A culminating exhibition in a more traditional art-viewing setting will integrate the sculptural installations with the collected responses.


You can see some great images of Satterfield's clay sculpture — terrific work — on her Kickstarter page (where you can also donate to the project) and more on her Facebook page. Get the best idea of what the tour is all about by watching the video above.
