Faces of Barton Springs: An Interactive Installation Curated by Karen Kocher and Lauren Jaben is an interactive installation curated by Karen Kocher and Lauren Jaben.
Barton Springs Conservancy is pleased to announce the multi-media Faces of Barton Springs installation opening on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, 2018. This interactive installation celebrates the many communities who swim at the Springs. It features a photo montage of Barton Springs swimmers from all walks of life ranging from artists and athletes to scientists and spiritual seekers.
Visitors are invited to create their own Barton Springs poems on our wall-size magnetic poetry tree, share a personal reflection or memory about Barton Springs on the community kiosk, and pose for a selfie with a life-sized vintage swimmer cut-out. The installation will also feature listening stations showcasing poetry, music, and other Springs-related lore.
Artists participating in the installation include: Randal Ford, Valerie Fowler, Nelson Guda, Nils Juul-Hansen, Sam Hurt, creator of Eyebeam, Omid Laridjani, Anthony Maddaloni, Nancy Mims, Will van Overbeek Alan Pogue and others.
An opening reception featuring music and artists’ introductions will be held on Sunday, April 22, from noon to 3 p.m. at 2201 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78746.
This project is made possible by the generosity of the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin.
