Artist Eileen de Rosas (MassArt MFA ’22) presents an artist talk discussing her recent Public Art at Wheaton (PAAW) project Into the Woods, sited in the Beard Courtyard of the Mars Science Center. De Rosas will also share work from her artistic practice more broadly.

Mourning in the abandoned industrial landscape, holding space in the detritus of capitalism: how can we turn symbols of death into the practice of life? Public Art at Wheaton (PAAW) invites you to hear from the artist behind its most recent addition. Zibby Jahns will introduce their work Reckoning Place, which was just installed in Everett Courtyard, and talk about their artistic practice.

Artist Oscar Bedford discusses his sculptural assemblages, which are at once hyper-realistic yet impossible to fathom thanks to his surreal and humorous approach and impeccable workmanship. Bedford will share his new installation, a super-sized “drain” installed temporarily on campus as the first commissioned work in a new partnership with the RISD Sculpture Graduate Program.
