      Artist in Residence Week: Kirsten Furlong

      The Great Plains Art Museum will host Boise-based artist Kirsten Furlong as the 2020 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence. Furlong creates images and objects about human, animal, and plant interactions and interprets natural history and current grassland ecology in the Great Plains and beyond through drawings, monotypes, and paintings. Bird species—past and present—insects, animals, and plants are depicted along with mark making inspired by the lines and textures of the prairie. During her residency, Furlong will create an artwork that will become part of the museum’s permanent collection. Visitors are encouraged to see the artist in action in the lower-level Elizabeth Rubendall Artist-in-Residence Studio & Education Lab March 17–21 during normal museum hours. Feel free to ask questions and interact with the artist! Please note that classes may be visiting the artist off and on during the residency. Furlong will return for a second week of residency June 2–6. The Elizabeth Rubendall Foundation has generously funded an artist-in-residence program at the Great Plains Art Museum since 2006.
