If you braved Ithaca’s cold and ventured outside this past winter, you may have briefly seen sculptures made from mud and burlap placed around Home Dairy Alley, Ithaca Falls, and the Route 13 overpass. If you were unsure what their purpose was, Andrew Lackland ’21 is here to explain.
Their art, which takes shape in the form of human-like sculptures, were intentionally made of those materials to make a point. Lackland imagined the materials being representative of where they have been and what type of circumstances these people are existing within.
Lackland, who was an art major at IC, added that the current climate crisis played a role in the project’s inception.
