Denver Art Museum thru October 22, 2017

Journeys are at the heart of Edburg’s creative practice. Her work is informed by travel and experiences in new places. For Uprooted, Edburg investigated Colorado’s Front Range: its geography, botany, zoology, and sociology. Learning that Denver and much of the state are home to transplanted populations, she was inspired to correlate the people she met with plants, animals, rocks, and weather patterns that likewise had histories of migration and adaptation.

Embedding herself in central Denver, Edburg met with art students, Latino communities, geologists, ranchers, merchants, and botanists to adapt her practice to the local culture. Uprooted looks at the similar journeys that seven elements in the Colorado landscape—lichen, cheat grass, river rock, red rock, alpaca, grassland, and tornadoes—make through very different scales of time. The common thread that unites them is that they represent migration and change.
