With inspiration from the Danish concept of “Hygge”, the Traveling Museum will be on site at Silverwood Park from February 2 – Mid March. The Museum will serve as a winter writer’s retreat for artist/writer Steven Lang
Steven Lang, a writer and visual artist, has been selected as the Silverwood Park’s first artist in residence. Lang will spend time during the month of February inside The Traveling Museum which has been transformed into a writer’s den — a sort of “Walden” on the ice. Inside the cabin and throughout the park, Lang will draw on themes of winter, winter recreation, time, solitude, and hibernation, to expand both his fiction writing and photography portfolio.
In recent years, Lang has been an artist in residence at Elsewhere in Greensboro, NC, and a recipient of the Loft’s mentor program award. He is a staff member at Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
On March 16th at 7:00pm, Lang will share photos and stories from his time in residence. He will then be joined by Silverwood Park and Coffee House Press staff members for a conversation on arts and the environment. This event is free and open to the public.
