F News Features Alumna's Garfield Park Conservatory Installation

August 30, 2012—On August 17 F Newsmagazine featured a video interview with artist and recent SAIC alumna Annette Elliot (MFA 2012) about her recent installation at the Garfield Park Conservatory. While describing her piece Light Projection—a digital reenactment of the 2011 hailstorm that shattered the panes of glass at that location, on view for a week last month—Elliot details the intricacies involved in proposing art installations in nontraditional places and how being persistent with the city ultimately allowed her to have free reign over the project.
