Visual Art Insights: Camas Prairie with MK Guth

May 5, 2020

This summer, SVMoA’s BIG IDEA project “From the Colour of Its Bloom” explores the landscapes and history of the nearby Camas Prairie. 

SVMoA has invited Portland-based artist MK Guth to lead a free flag-painting workshop for people of all ages. Participants will paint a small flag with their personal interpretation of the Camas Lily, and SVMoA will hang the community flags in their summer exhibition. We’ll be releasing details on how to participate soon!


In the meantime, to learn more about MK Guth’s belief in the power of art to build community, check out this video about her 2008 project for the Whitney Biennial, “Ties of Protection and Safekeeping.”
