Larry Burns as the artist "mylarr" with duck on his head, sitting in front of "Taking Refuge in..."

The 52 Project “Taking Refuge in…”

I’m part of a group show running from Feb 2nd 2023 through April 30th 2023. The seven pieces that comprise my contribution were planned and constructed during my 10 months as caretaker and “artist in residence” at Cathy Allen’s Sunvale Village. This 10 acre interactive outdoor desert installation used found objects to create a world in support of all things small. A month following the end of my residency, the property owner chose to discontinue management of the space. As of this writing, the status of Sunvale Village, as well as the residents of Sunvale Village, is unknown.

I’ve been a member of this art collective since 2015 and I am grateful to Riverside Art Museum for investing in the program and providing space for creative people to meet other like minded people. Sometimes we event finish projects and share them with each other.  I encourage you to find creative spaces as well to express yourself and enjoy the company of others (for a few hours!!).

Show is open during regular Riverside Art Museum hours of operation.

During Arts walk (First Thursdays) and First Sundays I will be performing in the space as mylarr. I’ll have interactive games to play where you can add and change my exhibit and I will re-enact some of the activities I did out in Wonder Valley during 2022, including raking sand, drying fruit, and constructing tiny domiciles for ideas to take refuge in.
