This is the last week of our exhibition, Rabbit Island: Works and Research 2010-2013, at the DeVos Art Museum. If you are in northern Michigan before November 17th—last chance—stop in and see it in person.
For those unable to visit, photos from the opening and documentation of the work on display can be found at the DeVos Art Museum Flickr.
Thank you to museum director, Melissa Matuscak, and her staff for curating and installing an amazing exhibition. Thanks also to Edwin Robert Carter for designing a brilliant catalogue. A sincere thank you to all who have come to see the exhibition in person.
Melissa reported this earlier in the week: “We’ve had groups of all ages visit (literally from kindergartners to 90+) and everyone responds to the show with awe, interpreting it in very different ways. Six hundred and ninety-five students (K-12) came through a few weeks ago. Numerous groups from the university visited—not just art and design students but english, sociology, ecology, etc. A group of nail tech students even came through because they’d heard about Lucy Engelman’s illustrations and wanted to get inspired by new ideas for nail art! (I’m looking for photos of anything that came of the visit!) Just today, a group of early-stage alzheimer patients toured with Alzheimer Association staff and the photographs triggered conversations about their time visiting or living in the Keweenaw. The way the work has provoked the imagination of visitors has been fun to watch, not to mention what it says about the experience on Rabbit Island.”

Sullivan, Colin Curry, Cabin-Time 3 (Sarah Darnell, Ryan Greaves, Geoffrey Holstad, Isabella Martin, Miles Mattison, Colin McCarty, Mary Rothlisberger), LoT Office for Architecture (Leonidas Trampoukis & Eleni Petaloti), David Buth/Summer Journeys/Christina Mrozik, Emily Julka, Helen Lovelee, Lucy Engleman, Rob Gorski, Sara Maynard, Tony Cenicola and Will Holman.
