Kristine Heykants – Artist Reception & Gallery Talk
Public reception for the “Uprooted” exhibition by ISU College of Design alumna Kristine Heykants (BFA 1988 Art & Design) with a gallery talk at 7 p.m.
Part memoir, part typology, Heykants’ “Uprooted” project is an ongoing quest to uncover meaning and connection in Belmond, Iowa, where her father grew up and she visited often while growing up. The story behind the project begins in 2013 when she took over management of family farmland. Now Heykants uses photography to create a visual description of the people and the place, filtered through her experiences of the past.
The exhibition is on display through Jan. 31 in the Pioneer Room at the Iowa State Memorial Union.
