The Great Plains Art Museum will host Boise-based artist Kirsten Furlong as the 2020-21 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence. Furlong’s artwork interprets the natural history and current grassland ecology in the Great Plains and beyond through drawings, monotypes, and paintings. Bird species—past and present—insects, animals, and plants are depicted along with mark making inspired by the lines and textures of the prairie.

During her residency, Furlong will create an artwork that will become part of the museum’s permanent collection. Visitors are encouraged to see the artist in action in the lower-level Elizabeth Rubendall Artist-in-Residence Studio & Education Lab June 1-12 during normal museum hours. Feel free to ask questions and interact with the artist!

This event is free and open to the public. The residency and associated events will comply with all UNL and Lincoln-Lancaster County COVID-19 policies.
