Broward County's Public Art & Design Program to Host Conversation with Artist-in-Residence Dawn Roe, 5/2

Broward County's Public Art & Design Program invites the public to a unique conversation. Artist-in-Residence Dawn Roe is commissioned to create a series of works inspired by her artistic responses to the expansion of the South Runway and Terminal 4 at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. On May 2, Roe will discuss her approach to the project by previewing works-in-progress as well as a selection of her past works to provide a sense of her overall practice. The Artist's Talk will be held at Studio Henning Haupt, 823 NE 4th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale at 6 p.m. The talk will be accompanied by a slideshow including photographs and video clips.

Roe uses the camera to investigate issues of temporality, memory and history with a focus on optical experience. She is interested in spaces that shift or change either through environmental or seasonal occurrences, or manmade transformation. The rich histories within Broward County coupled with the symbolic removal and redistribution of the land throughout the construction process are perfectly suited to the nature of her work. "This is an excellent time to bring history and art together," says Cultural Division Director Earl Bosworth. "Through this commission, the Public Art & Design Program is maximizing this opportunity in order to narrate and depict artistically, the expansion of the south runway and Terminal 4 "

Dawn Roe is an artist and educator. She teaches at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida and lives part-time in Asheville, North Carolina. Her work combines still photography and digital video in an effort to activate and make visible perceptual inconsistencies between experienced and recorded time.
