Join us for a tour with artist Presley Martin, one of the 15 artists selected through an international call by Art Center’s curator Zoe Cinel and Guest Curator John Schuerman for the group exhibition Walk With Us. More info about the exhibition: https://rochesterartcenter.org/event/walk-with-us/. The artist is also part of the 4Ground: Midwest Land Art Biennial, with a public art sculpture. 4Ground serves as a fundamental and radical interrogation of place through a rural perspective and an experimental, collaborative approach to art-making and curating through co-creation and authorship.

About the artist: Martin Presley’s practice involves walking along the banks of the Mississippi River picking up plastic that has floated down the river where he sees objects that could be either a rock or a piece of weathered plastic. After picking them up for confirmations, he assembles these rock-like pieces of plastic into cairn trail markers. These trail markers are both the result of his walking/collecting practice and markers to remind us to question what we think we are witnessing in the world.
