Frank Porter Graham Lecture presents: The Carrying Stones Project by Sawyer Rose, FRSA, MRSS
September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sawyer Rose, FRSA, MRSS is a sculptor, installation and social practice artist. Throughout her career, Rose has used her artwork to shine a spotlight on contemporary social and ecological issues. Her work on The Carrying Stones Project addresses women’s work inequity and has been featured by The New York Times, Ms. Magazine, and Bust Magazine. Rose’s work has been exhibited widely across the US.
The Carrying Stones Project combines art and data visualization to jump-start public conversation about women’s work inequity. The works encourage viewers to confront issues of equity, labor, and community by pairing human faces and stories with the numbers behind them.
The artworks from The Carrying Stones Project profile female-identifying people of different ages, races, sexual orientations, occupations, and socio-economic statuses — building a broad yet touchingly intimate picture of the labor that underpins the complex fabric of our society. Sawyer chooses the women she depicts both for their compelling personal work stories and for the larger issues their stories bring up.
Please join us for a public reception and lecture on The Carrying Stones Project. The sculptures will be on display in Davis Library from September 19 – November 14, 2022. These events are free and open to the public. For more info on The Carrying Stones Project go to https://www.carrying-stones.com/.
