Mater Matrix Mother and Medium
Have you ever seen a performance piece? Come and enjoy a new work by UW graduate Mandy Greer next week at Camp Long! It’s free and open to the public!
Artist Mandy Greer is creating an artwork she will install this summer at Camp Long in West Seattle. Titled Mater Matrix Mother and Medium, the project includes participatory art-making events, the temporary installation of a 200-foot fiber “river” and a dance performance. Mater Matrix Mother and Medium celebrates the splendor of Seattle’s urban creeks and encourages stewardship of essential watersheds.
