Marfa Dialogues

Ranch Day | Ballroom Marfa Botanical Collage Workshop

September 30, 2018

Casa Perez Ranch Day

Sunday, September 30
2:00pm Ballroom Marfa Botanical Collage Workshop with artists Jeff Keeling & Sandra Harper

Ballroom Marfa is pleased to be included in Judd Foundation’s 2018 Ranch Day, an open house at Casa Perez with guided visits of the Ranch, live music & BBQ, and a talk by Aimee Roberson, Coordinator of the Rio Grande Joint Venture for the American Bird Conservancy

Ballroom hosts a botanical collage workshop at Ranch Day inspired by our current exhibition Hyperobjects, which features a selection of herbarium samples on loan from the Sul Ross State University Herbarium.

Together we will learn what a herbarium sample is and why they are important to botanists while creating collages from native plant materials. Local botanist & artist Jeff Keeling and artist & plant lover Sandra Harper will lead the workshop that thinks about both science and aesthetics.
