Lynden Launches Site with Virtual Tours/Education Materials

 

By - Mar 25th, 2020 03:06 pm

Dear Friends of Lynden,

Today we begin rolling out virtual materials to be used while staying at home. We are posting these materials on a new, mobile-friendly platform; when we reopen, we will adapt this tool to enhance your visits to Lynden.

You can access these materials here.

Among the offerings today: two virtual tours, one of Folayemi Wilson’s Eliza’s Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities, the other of Gary John Gresl’s The Body Farm at Lynden; an art project based on the quilts and quilters of Gee’s Bend from the virtual classroom of La Escuela Fratney’s art teacher and Lynden teacher in residence, Sue Pezanoski Browne; and an art drop-in project from Lynden’s Jeremy Stepien related to The Body Farm.

We will be posting content regularly, with new art drop-in projects on Wednesdays (for ages 11 and up) and Thursdays (for ages 6 and up). We are running a more participatory version of these art drop-ins via Google Classroom. This is a closed platform, and we monitor participants, so please email Jeremy at jstepien@lyndensculpturegarden.org if you would like to join.

We will send out a weekly digest new content to our entire e-list, but if you would like to receive a daily alert, join this list.

Please let us know what you think. We welcome feedback, and suggestions, as we figure out how to serve you in this new environment.

Many thanks,
Jeremy, Claudia, Anna, Polly, and Willy
