Emily Dickinson Museum Conservatory Art Installation Opening

Join us at The Emily Dickinson Museum to celebrate the opening of our inaugural Conservatory Art Installation! On June 21, from 6:30 to 8:00PM, Tereza Swanda will transform the Conservatory with her exhibition of stained and painted glass. A graduate of the Vermont College of Fine Arts and the Massachusetts College of Art and an Instructor of Art at Dean College, Swanda will transform the Conservatory alongside glass artist Ingrid Pichler and musician Fletcher Boote with their exhibit “In formation.”

Taking the Emily Dickinson poem “Nature is what we see” as the starting point, the installation will include stained and painted paper hung from the windows in the Conservatory to mimic the colors of a sunset. Providing each visitor with a sense of what Dickinson saw from her conservatory windows, the medium will also make malleable the experience of the artwork, changing with the time of the day and the amount of light present. In addition to this visual component, the landscape will be translated into sound by Boote that wordlessly references Emily Dickinson’s poetry.
