Art Exhibit: Jennifer Angus, “A is for Ant, B is for Bug, C is for Cicada”
May 7, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$8
Jennifer Angus is a professor in Design Studies at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Creating some of the most provocative work in an art museum setting, Angus’ medium is insects. Her exhibition at Wyoming Valley School Cultural Arts Center will fill our entire School with bugs! Her unique installations show insects as art, with her intricate displays showing how something as humble as an insect can be beautiful.
Jennifer has exhibited her work internationally including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and Spain. She has received awards from the Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council, and the University of Wisconsin. Recently she received the inaugural Forward Art Prize for outstanding women artists of Wisconsin.
Angus’ exhibition “In the Midnight Garden”, was part of “Wonder” the inaugural exhibition that reopened the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C. She was one of nine artists selected by curator Nicholas Bell for this landmark exhibition. Reviews of Angus’ work have appeared in Art Daily, the New York Times, the Huffington Post, Artlink, Art Papers, NY Arts Magazine, Architectural Digest, ArtNews and many others.
This exhibition is also an opportunity for the public to see our building after a major historic rehabilitation. Located just three miles south of Taliesin in Spring Green, Jennifer’s installation is educational, interactive, and a perfect fit for this historic school. She is thrilled to be installing in her first Frank Lloyd Wright space, referring to it as “inspiring.”
The exhibition runs from March 26-June 10. Admission prices are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, students and military with children under the age of six admitted free. All proceeds will go towards the continuation of programming at the school. The exhibition will be open from 10am until 3pm Thursday through Sunday.
