On view from March 5 – March 27, 2015

In celebration of 40 years of Art in Downtown Athens the Lyndon House Arts Center will host a rotating exhibition, Forty of Something, collections from our community. The collections will greatly vary, featuring an array of items but there will always be a constant, 40, always 40 of them, 40 examples, 40 specimens, 40 treasures.

The first collection on view is Lauren Fancher’s Forty Found Photographs. She has amassed photos from thrift shops and antique junk stores, from trash bins, from abandoned houses, from the side of the road and off the ground. 40 highlights from her ever-evolving collection will be on display this month as well as interactive QR scans linking to video and audio interpretations inspired by the Forty Found Photographs.

Lauren Fancher has an educational background in studio art (BFA, UGA) and instructional technology (MEd, UGA). Her work focuses on interactive design and digital media, including video, sound, music, and performance. She is active in the instructional technology, library, and digital arts communities as a writer, presenter, and artist.
