Marking Time


Marking Time | Zuckerman Museum of Art

Permanent Installation
Zuckerman Museum of Art

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 22, 2015

Atlanta-based artist Beth Lilly presents a contemporary cairn to visually track and mark the history of the Zuckerman Museum of Art. Although the word “cairn” comes from the Celtic languages, the idea of piling stones as a monument is pan-cultural and its origins are prehistoric. In treeless uplands around the world, it has been traditional to build stone cairns along a route to mark the way. Each traveler added rocks as they passed so that over time, the cairn became more visible and thus, a better landmark.

Marking Time will memorialize the collaborations between artists, the institution, and the public through a collection of stones and other objects. Each addition to the cairn will be included in a searchable database that will provide additional information about the represented artist or exhibition project.
