ABOUT THE PROJECT

New Jersey based artist Lauren Rosenthal McManus is VAPA’s Female Emerging Artist Residency Series resident for fall 2021.  Her work focuses on the relationship between communities and their local watersheds and she draws upon map makingcartography, art history, and ecology to reveal, explore, and re-envision our culture’s complex relationship with fresh  water. Her practice is centered on creating large, site- specific, temporary wall drawing murals of regional watersheds using pigments made from rocks and soil collected along their banks.  For her show at GOCA Downtown, she will make a drawing of the Fountain Creek watershed, while also exhibiting prints from her artist book her piece Political / Hydrological: A Watershed Remapping of the Contiguous United States, a folio that re-envision the geo-political boundaries of each of our country’s lower 48 states fifty states by way of their primary watersheds.
