Lecture by Karrie Hovey

Jepson Center Thursday, March 27, 2014 | 6 pm


Noted San Francisco-based artist Karrie Hovey undertakes a residency at Telfair Museums to raise awareness of the creative possibilities of recycled materials and to support the City of Savannah’s recycling effort. Hovey has created her art in venues across the U.S. and China, highlighting issues from recycling to endangered species.

Hovey transforms humble materials into vibrant gardens, using items such as cast-off packing foam and old telephone books. At the Jepson Center, she will create an installation, …the Garden Grows: Inside and Out, in the Eckburg Atrium and public spaces.
