CANCELLED Lecture Series: Marion Wilson

November 8 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 per person / Penn State Abington students and AAC Members free


Speaker: Marion Wilson

This talk has been cancelled for Wednesday, November 8, and will be rescheduled.

Marion Wilson will discuss her work in the context of her latest collaboration with Mural Arts to reimagine and revitalize the bilingual William Cramp Elementary School. The scope of the new project includes the school and surrounding unused spaces in the North Philadelphia neighborhood. Wilson uses recycled materials and unlikely collaborations to revitalize urban spaces through the arts. She is the founder of MLAB (a mobile eco/art lab) and 601 Tully – renovating a drug house into a neighborhood Art Museum.

Marion Wilson is the 2017/18 Abington Art Center – Penn State Abington Innovation Program Artist-in- Residence. She is an Associate Professor at Syracuse University, and from 2007-16 she institutionalized an art curriculum called New Directions in Social Sculpture. Wilson uses recycled materials and unlikely collaborations to revitalize urban spaces through the arts. She is the founder of MLAB (a mobile eco/art lab) and 601 Tully – renovating a drug house into a neighborhood Art Museum.

Wilson’s studio work employs artifacts of the photography industry in sculpture, painting and printed photographs: specifically researching and classifying endangered landscapes through useful and stress tolerant botanies.
