Sorry for the radio silence here in the NEWS portion --
I am revamping how I will utilize this space, particularly with the pause that COVID has forced into all of our lives.
I am please to announce that I am now a professor in the Honors Department at the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire. I teach two courses there, "The Intersection of Art and Science: Fantastical Mergings" and "The Quiet One: The Lost Art of Musing."
I have also extended my studio space so more work is on the way! I am still collaborating with Ecovative Design and have a new series of fungal sculptures in the works.
I hope you have all been well and stay tuned for more work!
Feel free to follow my progress more on instagram: @CVPetersonStudios
Until later, cheers!
Broken Red Balloon Dog-- was an amazing performance reading/lecture held tonight at the Chicago Cultural Center. A night of 5 writers having their writings on things not worth writing about cold read by 5 performative readers who had never met them before.
Laughter, rapt attention, a lone snorer... It was an amazing night introduced by the equally amazing Matthew Goulash!
Elevate: DJ Sadie Woods at The House of Blues!
Sound artist Sadie Woods DJs tonight at The House of Blues in Chicago! I am very excited to attend this bad bitch's event! (See Sadie! Not quite "the baddest bitch" but close <3)
Come out and support! It will be an epic time. Drinks and dancing abound!
For a first post this is a really awesome event. I'm make a point of supporting all of my fellow artists regardless of discipline. Only going to performance exhibitions, while amazing, would limit the amazing opportunities that Chicago's art scene has to offer!
