Installation: Land Displace Ment / Replace Ment
Feb 20, 2019 — Apr 30, 2019
An interactive public art project by Emily Stergar
Part of being from a place, or living in a community is knowing the landscape. Oftentimes, the earth under your feet feels more authentic than a person ever could. Emily Stergar’s work is rooted in these ideas and if you claim Acadiana as your home we need your help.
Stergar’s sculpture will be outdoors near the Hilliard’s water wall from 2/18/2019 – 4/30/2019. Mark your claim to our community by bringing a small container of soil from your home or a favorite place to contribute to Stergar’s sculpture. Take an image of yourself with your earth contribution, then post it on social media tag us on Facebook or Instagram @hilliardmuseum with your neighborhood or city.
Emily Stergar is Assistant Professor of Sculpture in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Department of Visual Arts. She is a recent transplant to Lafayette.
