"Meister's work makes visible the invisible, and while many of the topics feel terrifying, the artist also wants people to feel connected and empowered through community engagement."

Upcoming: Art(ists) on the Verge Summer 2021
Postponed from 2020, the 10th Art(ists) on the Verge cohort (Candice Davis, AP Looze, Kelley Meister, and Sarah Nassif) will present our work this spring and summer. My mobile experience, Hot Zone, a 100-mile bike ride from Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant to Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant along Hahawakpa/Misi Ziipi/Mississippi River will take place in 3 segments on Saturdays throughout the summer. Participants may join up to ~15 total for each ride (TBD due to social distancing and other COVID restrictions at the time of the ride), all others will be invited to watch via live stream. We will be doing environmental monitoring of the river valley, using radiation monitoring equipment as well as our eyes, hands, and phones to draw and photograph our observations of the flora and fauna along the way.
Stay tuned for more details about how to join and/or watch! And please get in touch if this sparks any interest!
