Kate Raudenbush talk at Future’s Past
November 24, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Artist Kate Raudenbush will be present at the installation site of her piece, Future’s Past, to discuss it and the rest of her work. This event is presented as a part of San Francisco Travel’s inaugural “Illuminate SF”, a new seasonal program which offers the entire city of San Francisco as a gallery of light-filled art, illuminating the dark winter evenings of November through January.
About the Artist
Kate Raudenbush is a New York City-based artist who creates allegorical environments as a form of social dialogue. Mixing visual symbolism cross-culturally within human history and mythology, geometry and architecture, her art finds inspiration within the micro and macro viewpoints of our natural and manufactured worlds. She utilizes welded and laser-cut metal, acrylic, mirror, sound and light to shape her designs into enveloping environments and sacred spaces that are given more meaning with each visitor’s participation. In this way, the artwork is not just an object to behold, but also an experience to be lived.
Her work references and weaves together such diverse sources as sacred geometry, Hindu creation myth, Native American art, Mayan architecture, D.N.A. strands, water, time, consciousness, computer circuitry, Buddhist symbolism, environmental sustainability, meditation, and self-empowerment. Raudenbush endeavors to create art that questions and informs, includes and elevates, fostering an awareness of our environment and social issues that resonate with the evolving conscience of our collective culture.
Her sculpture is in the permanent collection of the Nevada Museum of Art, (Guardian of Eden), and includes publicly and privately commissioned works for performances, events and clients in civic settings, such as The Reno Arts and Culture Commission, the Black Rock Arts Foundation, the All Points West Music Festival, Maker Faire NYC, Lightning in a Bottle in LA, Electric Zoo art and music festival NYC, Escape to New York Festival, Virgin Mobile FreeFest, Melchior Productions, Golden Voice, The Figment Festival in NYC, and Alex’s Grey’s CoSM Art Sanctuary. Over the last 8 years, Kate has had the pleasure of creating large-scale commissioned artworks for the Burning Man event.
Actively involved at The Nationals Arts Club and the Sculptor’s Guild in New York, Kate is also an advisory board member of the Black Rock Arts Foundation in San Francisco.
