Los Angeles-based artist Lisa Anne Auerbach arrived on campus Monday (March 17) for a two-week stay to visit classes, conduct a workshop and give a lecture. Auerbach, whose work has been exhibited internationally since 1996, is this year’s Victor E. Ferrall, Jr. Artist-in-Residence

Auerbach, who focuses primarily on knitting, photography and publications, will discuss and showcase some of her work in the lecture taking place Wednesday, April 2. Free and open to the public, “Stricken by the Chicken” begins at 8 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium, Morse-Ingersoll Hall. (Chicken Strikken is the name of her recent solo exhibition in Sweden.)

The following day, Auerbach will unveil a walkway that she and her students will create and install using brick pavers they paint with Native American designs. The walkway will be located between the studio annex of the Wright Museum of Art and the Smith Building. The 4 p.m. unveiling is free and open to the public.

An assistant professor of art at Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., Auerbach is a 2014 Whitney Biennial Artist. As part of that honor, she will be among the select artists to participate in a March 7 – May 25 exhibition at New York City’s Whitney Museum of American Art. Her work is represented by Gavlak Gallery in Palm Beach, Fla.
