Carrie Iverson & Nathan Sandberg: Groundwork

@ Mosnart / Pullman Clocktower

11057 S Cottage Grove, Chicago, IL 60628

Opening Friday, September 19th, from 5PM - 9PM

On view through Friday, October 20th

With thanks to Kelly Ludeking and Eric W. Stephenson for their help organizing and running the iron pour.

Groundwork is a reflection on history, labor, industry, boundaries and growth. Working together, artists Carrie Iverson and Nathan Sandberg will present new works in a variety of materials on the grounds of the Pullman State Historic Site.

The exhibit will take place in two parts: Part 1 will be an iron pour on the factory grounds where members of the community will be invited to participate. Part 2 will be a site-specific art installation within the Clock Tower and Administration Building.

“The iron pour will bring to life the community and foundry history of the factory in a dramatic and fiery way- an exciting chance for the public to participate in and learn about the processes that used to happen within the factory. We will then use some of the remnants from the pour to create a site-specific installation within the factory, supplemented by other found and existing works. This more reflective installation will offer an outside perspective on the spirit that built Pullman and the events that lead to its present state.”

Co-sponsored by Mosnart, Pullman State Historic Site and PullmanArts.
