ASU English alumna Karla Elling (BA 1965; MA 1968; PhD 1975) is featured in this exhibition coinciding with the seven-year anniversary of the opening of the TCA (Sept. 9, 2007). The exhibition features works on copper, art made of copper and artists inspired by copper, a tradition for seventh anniversaries. A panel of nationally recognized artists, curators and community members selected 22 Arizona artists from a wide array of visual art traditions, including bronze casting, painting, ceramics, etching, quilt making and jewelry.
ASU English Associate Professor Ron Broglio co-curates and ASU English co-sponsors this exhibit. Artists Bryndis Snæbjörnsdóttir (Iceland) and Mark Wilson (England) explore the networked effects of conservation initiatives in Arizona. Over two years, they researched programs underway to reintroduce the California Condor and the Humpback Chub into the Grand Canyon. Through humor, wonder and surprise, their installation of photographs and videos explores the complexity of human-animal interactions and their combined impact on ecologies.
