November 3 – December 30, 2017
Lynn Naden’s “ROOT” will be a multi-component installation in the Pratt’s semi-subterranean cellar (lower gallery). ROOT explores interconnections and ancestry. The central structure will be built up from strips of paper containing community-sources perspectives on roots. Visit the Pratt Museum to contribute your own story and be part of this multilayered installation.
As John Muir once stated, “When you tug at a root, you’ll find that everything else is connected.”
Following its premiere at the Pratt Museum, ROOT will also travel to Naden’s ancestral homes: Central California and Serbia.
