New Windsor, NY
For Outlooks: Heather Hart, the American artist (b. 1975) will install an interactive, sculptural
environment in the form of a domestic rooftop, which will be activated by performances, discussions, and
events. Hart’s work, which spans social and participatory sculpture, drawing, and printmaking, deals with
issues of perception, history, and spirituality.
Among the events hosted within Hart’s created environment at Storm King will be The Black Lunch
Table, an ongoing collaboration between Hart and Jina Valentine, an artist and UNC Assistant Professor
of Art. First staged in 2005 at the preeminent artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and
Sculpture, this project augments the dominant history of contemporary art with the testimonies of living,
working African American artists.
