Hertel presents ‘Sailcloth Art Project’ at Virginia Tech

Nov. 9, 2016


Heather Hertel, Slippery Rock University associate professor of art, recently presented the collaborative aspects of her "Sailcloth Art Project" at the Southeastern College Art Conference at Virginia Tech University. The conference was by invitation only. 

Hertel's "Dance with Me: Dynamic Collaborations between Visual and Performing Arts" explored the use of dance, music and poetry as elements of her sailcloth project, which involved the painting of recycled sails for art installations.

She recently exhibited the "Sailcloth Art Project" at the annual Tall Ships Festival in Erie.
