THE WILDLIFE PROJECT
Working with the curatorial team at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, the exhibition photography was led by Scott Cartwright, while the layout of the exhibition catalog for Wendy Maruyama: The wildLife Project was designed and art directed by Jenny Lynn Weitz, who works for the institution as Marketing Director.
The catalog features a curatorial statement by Elizabeth Kozlowski, a Q & A with artist Wendy Maruyama, and an essay by Kathryn Hall. Wendy Maruyama: The wildLIFE Project serves to illustrate the plight of elephants and the illegal ivory trade. Through a moving installation of life-sized objects made from exotic woods and string and shrine-like forms made from steel and glass, the show makes a compelling case for the preservation of animals in the wild.
Organized by Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and curated by Elizabeth Kozlowski, The wildLIFE Project will travel to five venues through 2017, including Penland School of Craft, Chrysler Museum of Art, The Museum of Art & Design, and others.
