Emily Sevier: Arroya Mud, Opening Reception Dec. 5 at UC San Diego

Dates: December 1 – December 14
Opening Reception: December 5, 5 – 9 pm

Location: Visual Arts Facility Graduate Studio, #452, UC San Diego

The network of canyons that fan throughout the urban grid of San Diego, act as palimpsests for the mundane histories that have shaped the City. Sevier’s interest in mud, or more specifically San Diego’s mud began when she moved into one of these canyons and began to sift through the debris.The Arroya Mud MFA thesis exhibition marks a year-long investigation into the micro-landscape of this partially developed urban canyon and the tangential flows that connect it to a larger web of regional history.

Arroya Mud is open by appointment, e-mail esevier [at] ucsd [dot] edu to set up a viewing.

Emily Sevier is an UC San Diego MFA Candidate. For more on her work, please visit:
