The Driftless Historium will host an artist reception and presentation on Saturday, August 10 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., with refreshments served. This event is the capstone of UW-Madison Graduate Student Eva Gabriella Flynn’s art installation "No Man's Land: Paintings from the Borderlands." At 5:30 p.m., Flynn will discuss her work and its inspirations, a timely look at the personal and powerful impact of immigrant and immigration dialogue and perceptions. Flynn is the daughter of a Mexican immigrant and a prosecutor for Homeland Security. She grew up in Mexico and the United States, and sees herself as part of two separate worlds. This art show features a collection of abstract paintings with a figural presence, informed by these experiences as a Mexican-American woman from the borderlands. In them, she attempts to recreate the sense of building a home along with building an identity. This installation (showing in the Kalscheur Family Foundation Community Education Room & Gallery daily, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. through Aug 10) and event are part of the Driftless Historium’s 2019 theme, “Immigrants of Wisconsin: Yesterday and Today.” With financial support generously provided by the Mount Horeb Community Foundation, the Mount Horeb Area Historical Society has planned a year-long mix of speakers and exhibitions about both early Wisconsin’s foreign-born settlers and current events.
