Billie Grace Lynn will give a public lecture Thursday, April 7, 2011
in room 249 of the Fine Arts Building at Florida State University.
“This has always been the work of art: to inspire the senses — to make
the body feel — without necessarily direct experience, through signs,
colors, sounds, movement, and so on. At its highest, the experience
and the making of art are identical. Accordingly, my work is usually
interactive and kinetic in nature. I strive to make pieces in which
the viewer interface is both the form and function of the piece. I
want people to remember themselves, in much the same way that babies
discover their fingers. When my work is successful, the piece is
completed by the viewer-participant and she/he continues her/his
journey more aware and delighted in being a body.” – Billie Grace
Lynn is represented by Bernice Steinbaum Gallery in Miami, FL.
The CVAT&D Presents lecture series is funded by a generous gift from
the late Vincent and Mary Agnes Thursby.
