What's in a Landscape?

What’s in a Landscape? is a project undertaken by Art in Residence, in partnership with the Museum of Art and History, to uncover the diverse and multivalent relationships Antelope Valley residents have to the landscape they call home. The goals of the project focused on documenting the people of the Antelope Valley and their relation to its landscape and history. Using the work of Rackstraw Downes as a jumping off point, Art In Residence organized four workshops at Quartz Hill High School, each building on the next, giving students the opportunity to explore plant-centered narratives, documentary filmmaking, landscape painting and mural design, and oral histories. 

 

What’s in a Landscape? is generously supported by the California Arts Council’s Artists in Communities grant program and the Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation.

Un taller sobre narrativas centradas en las plantas

En este taller, Jenny Yurshansky tomó la clase de inglés de 11 ° grado de Richard Rosenblatt a través de un ejercicio de escritura guiado. Los estudiantes recolectaron un recorte de una planta y luego escribieron una narrativa que incorpora el punto de vista de esa planta. Algunos estudiantes se volvieron personales, otros se volvieron especulativos. La escritura adoptó diversas formas, desde la prosa hasta la poesía y las anotaciones en los diarios. Al escribir de esta manera, los estudiantes ganaron empatía por el paisaje como un compañero vivo de sus habitantes humanos.
