Franklin Evans creates immersive environments that reflect his experience of blurred boundaries. His work mixes the personal and the historical, the chronological and the non-linear, the intuitive and the analytic, and the hand-made and the reproduction. For franklinsfootpaths, Evans will use both the Figge's collection and the building's architecture to create a site-specific installation made up of painting, collage, sculpture, video, personal ephemera, and layers of artists' tape and other raw materials in the Gildehaus Gallery. The installation will explore elements of his personal history in Iowa while also encouraging new ways of experiencing our museum.
