Press release from the DeVos Art Museum. Come join us tomorrow.

Rabbit Island: Works and Research 2010-2013
We’re very excited to announce the opening of “Rabbit Island: Works and Research 2010-2013” tonight at the DeVos Art Museum in Marquette, Michigan. The show will run from October 11th to November 17th.

The island’s residency program, in beta stage since 2010, has welcomed over 50 artists, designers, musicians, writers, chefs and other creative thinkers, yet the island has been left in its native state. As the official residency program is set to launch in 2014, this exhibition looks back on the past three years of projects inspired by and created on the island. It is both an experiment in and discourse on the intersection of creation, consumption and conservation, ideas we feel very strongly about and would like to push to the forefront of our culture. 

The exhibition features works by Emilie Lee, Andrew Ranville, Charlotte X.C. Sullivan, Colin Curry, Cabin-Time 3 (Sarah Darnell, Ryan Greaves, Geoffrey Holstad, Isabella Martin, Miles Mattison, Colin McCarty, Mary Rothlisberger), LoT Office for Architecture (Leonidas Trampoukis & Eleni Petaloti), David Buth/Summer Journeys/Christina Mrozik, David Drennen, Emily Julka, Helen Lovelee, Lucy Engleman, Rob Gorski, Sara Maynard, Tony Cenicola and Will Holman. A full color, fully illustrated catalogue is available for purchase.

October 11 – November 17, 2013

The opening reception is Friday, October 11th, from 6-8pm, featuring live music by Jen Koppin and a culinary collaboration between NMU’s Chef Nathan Mileski and Chef Kelly Geary, former Rabbit Island Chef-in-Residence and Chef-Proprietor, Sweet Deliverance, NYC.
