Rachel Singel, an artist and associate professor at the University of Louisville, will demonstrate papermaking using fiber from invasive plants on Tuesday, May 30 at 5:30 pm.
This free event will open with a brief talk by a member of the park’s invasive plant management program, then Singel will describe and demonstrate her papermaking process. As time and materials permit, participants will have a chance to make an invasive plant paper sample.
This is free and open to the public as part of a partnership between the Artist-in-Residence program at Acadia National Park and ArtWaves.
This is the first public outreach of 2023 for the Artist-in-Residence program at Acadia National Park, which is commemorating the 30th anniversary of its founding in 1993. Starting this year, the program's operating costs are covered fully by donations from sales proceeds at America’s National Parks® stores throughout the park.
