November installation at Lake Herrick
Near Boardwalk Trail Bridge
Viewing event: Thursday, November 16 at Noon
Lecture: Friday, November 10 at 2 PM
Lamar Dodd Building Room S160
Interdisciplinary artist Clark Lunberry will talk about creating site-specific poetry installations and introduce a new work for the UGA campus. Lunberry is a Professor of English at the University of North Florida and the author of Sites of Performance: Of Time and Memory (Anthem Press 2014) and Writing on Water | Writing on Air (University of North Florida 2016). His large-scale poems placed on water and windows include recent installations in Oxford, England; Paris, France; Toronto, Canada; Tokyo and Hiroshima, Japan; and Stanford University.
Lunberry will create a temporary installation at Lake Herrick, a prominent feature within Oconee Forest Park, which serves as a living laboratory for research in the natural and social sciences. The new work, viewable near the Boardwalk Trail bridge, coincides with a major restoration project at UGA aimed at promoting water quality and enhancing Lake Herrick as an amenity for experiential learning, research, and recreation.
