Exhibit Explores Relationship Between Society and Natural Resources

The Creighton University Lied Art Gallery presents an installation by Tennessee artist Travis Graves. The installation titled “Paper Forest” opens Feb. 8 with a talk by the artist at 5 p.m. followed by a reception until 8 p.m.

“Paper Forest” is a site-specific installation that explores the tense relationship between consumerist society and the world’s natural resources through the use of Kaft-paper trees, stumps and sawdust.

The exhibit runs through March 27 and is free and open to the public from 1p.m. to 4 p.m. daily. The Gallery is also open during special events in the Lied Center for the Performing Arts. The Lied Gallery will be closed during the University’s spring break, March 9-17.

The event is funded in part by the generous support of the Richard and Mary McCormick Endowment for the Fine and Performing Arts, the Grace Keenan Fund and anonymous sources.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
