Erika Nelson To Lecture at SCCC/ATS
03/05/2011

Erika Nelson, artist and educator, will present a free slide lecture at 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 9, in the SCCC/ATS theater located in the Shank Humanities building, 1801 N. Kansas, Liberal.

The artist will speak about her art and experiences as curator of The Worlds Largest Collection of the Worlds Smallest Versions of the Worlds Largest Things. She will also have her art car on display at the college. Nelson is visiting Liberal as emcee for Pancake Day activities and will be driving her art car in the parade.

Nelson is a visionary artist and educator, exploring contemporary art forms in the public realm. Nelson is the creator and curator of a traveling roadside attraction and museum featuring "The World’s Largest Collection of the World’s Smallest Versions of the World’s Largest Things", and director of Worlds Largest Things, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Roadside Vernacular Architecture known as World’s Largest Things.

As an artist, she explores a multitude of art forms including video, installation, and assemblages. She earned her MFA from the University of Kansas with a thesis exhibition "Domesticated", an expansive installation environment exploring concepts of the American Dream. Nelson maintains an active exhibition record, while traveling to communities as a lecturer and consultant to Chambers of Commerce and arts organizations seeking to create their own "World’s Largest Thing", roadside attraction, or interactive arts event to increase tourism and economic development.  Her public art works include murals, Art Cars as public transportation, and bright graphic installations utilizing uncommon materials in a pictorial format.
