As part of ArtPark’s inaugural Working Artist Residency Program, MFA students from five universities were selected to create large scale outdoor sculptures. UB Department of Art MFA student Caroline Doherty, in collaboration with UB American Studies PhD student and Tyendinaga Mohawk scholar-activist Jodi Lynn Maracle and Tuscarora linguist Montgomery Clayton Hill, developed signage in the Tuscarora language to reinvigorate a respectful relationship with this particular landscape and with contemporary Native peoples, specifically, citizens of the Tuscarora Nation.
A reception will be held on Friday, June 19th, from 6:00 – 8:00pm at Artpark, 450 South 4th Street, Lewsiton, NY, 14092. The work will remain installed through the summer.
Limited edition prints as well as on site-site screen printing (bring your own shirt, bag, hoody, etc. to be printed on) will be available for a donation to benefit the Tuscarora Language Immersion Program from 4:00-8:00pm on Friday June 19th.
