Take a 'junk walk' with Bucknell art professor on Monday

LEWISBURG, Pa. – Anna Kell, assistant professor of art at Bucknell University, will host a workshop and “Junk Walk” through downtown Lewisburg Monday, Feb. 25, at 1 p.m. The public program will begin at The Downtown Art Gallery located at 416 Market St. in Lewisburg.

Junk Walk seeks to introduce people to repurposing found items into art objects. Art history has documented several artists who have adopted variations of this process; Kell builds on these practices contemporarily.

“For me, found objects have a profound sense of history and specificity which relate to the values and visual culture of a particular place,” Kell said.

On the Junk Walk, people will try to "discover objects and phenomena that are truly Lewisburgian in character," and reconfigure them into sculptural arrangements "that express our unique experiences in this place.”

Participants are invited to explore the community and The Street of Shoppes, a local second-hand store, for items that can be repurposed. Kell will lead the walk relating the experience to her own art making practice, concluding at the Downtown Art Gallery. She will teach a collective workshop incorporating each object into a collaborative sculpture.

The completed piece will be on display in the window of the gallery through March 22.
