Autumn Leaves

Please visit the dedicated Autumn Leaves website for a full description of the project.

Developed over many months, Autumn Leaves culminates with an exhibition at Area 405 September 19 through November 2, 2014. Key project stakeholders include: 49 “elder” participants age 50 or above; 7 visual artists and 7 writers under the age of 50; 7 event advocates also under the age of 50; and 7 youth art groups. The heart of the project is 7 exhibition events at Area 405, each event featuring 7 of the total 49 “elder” participants. Each event has a similar arc and structure: reception followed by presentation followed by reception.

​...a series of 49 sketches by Peter Bruun inspire the project and invoke its theme...
​...each drawing created by making marks from looking in the mirror...
​...fleeting moments, captured mark by mark, adding up to a delicate form...
​...drawings that function as a symbol of moments and years passing...
​...marks marking passage through days, of built experience...
​...an invocation to a theme made concrete with "Autumn Leaves"...
​...not portraits so much as metaphors portraying life lived...
