LECTURE: MashUp #1 — Digital Arborglyphs & Sound and Mind
with John Bieter & Crystal Markham-Brown
Thursday, February 15, 2024 - 6:00 PM
The Sun Valley Museum of Art is collaborating with Boise State University’s College of Innovation + Design to bring their MashUp lecture series to the Wood River Valley. Inspired by similar programs at other contemporary art museums, MashUps are designed to bring audiences together with lecturers to evoke creative connections.
For each MashUp evening, two presenters will each speak for 20 minutes on a topic of their passion, and a third 20-minute segment invites the audience to ask questions and find commonality between the two disparate topics. The host and timekeeper for the evening will be Boise State University’s College of Innovation + Design’s Associate Dean, Jen Schneider.
MashUp #1 Speakers:
John Bieter is a Boise State University professor and historian of Basque culture, and a veteran presenter from Season 1 of MashUp held in Boise. He will be presenting on a project capturing images of wayfinding and cultural carvings Basque sheepherders have made in aspen trees for decades. Crystal Markham-Brown is a yoga teacher and sound healer and will be presenting on using sound, and especially mantras, as a form of mind healing and recovery from trauma.
Admission to the museum is always FREE!
