The Elisabet Ney Museum presents Re-Imagining the Ney: A Community Art Bash on October 21.
The Austin Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with the Friends of Elisabet Ney Museum present Re-Imagining the Ney: A Community Art Bash on Saturday, October 21 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Elisabet Ney Museum, 304 E. 44th St. It is free and open to the public.
Register via Eventbrite.
Reimagine Elisabet Ney's iconoclastic life and brilliant art through the lens of three Austin contemporary visual artists: Yuliya Lanina, Agustina Rodriguez and Lisa B. Woods. Each will be creating site-specific art experiences in the Museum or historic grounds. Attendees will experience artist interventions, theatrical performances, and musical expressions immersed throughout the Museum's expansive grounds, paired with curated food and drinks from local vendors and specialized museum tours crafted by interpretive actors, Yunina C Barbour-Payne, Venese Alcantar, and Savannah Lee.
In the flavor of Ney’s marble cutting process, Eric McMaster’s Digital Fabrication students from the University of Texas will share their current-day translations of Ney’s plaster casts. Come celebrate the museum's evolving programs and exhibits and share your thoughts on the next evolution of the Museum. As the evening approaches, the event will transition into an after-hours event, featuring interactive projects and musical interventions by artist Amanda Vaughn. Featured sponsors include Quiet Events, Fair Weather Cider Company, Fancy Fancy, and Chawar.
The Ney Museum strives to ensure an inclusive and community-centered approach and will be actively interviewing and surveying visitors throughout the event.
