WNMU Department of Cultural Affairs, in collaboration with WNMU painting and drawing professor Jennifer Douglass, present a virtual artist lecture.

Edie Tsong is a visual artist and writer. She is the Founding Director of Cut+Paste Society, a community of women writers and artists in the Santa Fe area, and the Founding Director of their Snow Poems Project. Ms. Tsong will lead an artist lecture focusing on handmade things as ways to connect people and people to places, and discussing the question “What is Social Practice and how does it connect into interdisciplinary ideas of art and culture?” She will also discuss her work and her connections to letters and letter writing.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Registration required.

In subsequent workshops, Ms. Tsong will lead WNMU students in the Departments of Expressive Arts, History, Sociology, Science, English and Philosophy in a creation of a public letter writing project, which will be displayed in shop windows in downtown Silver City by mid February.
