Exhibit: Fielding - Goldenrod, An Exploration of Connections
September 11—October 30, 2019, Wednesdays 10:00 am-5:00 pm
Morrill Science Center
UMass Amherst Campus
Fielding, curated by Emily Tareila (MFA, Studio Arts, 2019) uses the plant Goldenrod (L. solidago) as a lens through which to engage the Natural History Collections and the UMass community. The project looks at both human uses and history of the plant, its local history and current presence in the area, and its significance in the non-human sphere and ecology.
Fielding consists of a pop-up exhibition in Morrill Science Center with selections from the CNS collection, as well as original artwork, from natural dyeing, to plant identification, to cyanotype photography, and more. This exhibition is an outcome of Tareila’s Graduate Assistantship at the UMCA and a pilot project leading to UMCA’s future collaborations with the UMass science collections.
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 11, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. | 144 Morrill 2 South
