Visiting artist | Teresita Fernández
The Glass department and Division of Fine Arts welcome New York-based visual artist Teresita Fernández, best known for her prominent public sculptures and unconventional use of materials. Her work, often inspired by natural wonders—meteor showers, the aurora borealis, cloud formations, fire and the night sky—invites an individualized experience of the work and the space it occupies. Fernández places particular importance in her choice of medium, playing with the limitations of materials and employing gold, graphite and other minerals that have complicated histories often tied to colonialism.
