About me

Location Nashville, TN, United States
Introduction The Identity Sculptures Project is a 2012-2013 Curb Creative Campus Initiative at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. Visual artist and writer Lori Anne Parker-Danley (an editor in the Patient Education department at VUMC), is leading the project, which was born out of her interest in the relationship between writing and art and the ways language and storytelling shape (and are shaped by) our bodies and identities. Lori Anne will be creating sculptures that respond to and engage with the writings submitted by Vanderbilt faculty, students, and staff. One of the goals of the project is to create occasions for unexpected and spontaneous encounters and conversations (with art, writing, and each other) on the Vanderbilt campus. The identity sculptures will be displayed at various locations on Vanderbilt’s University and Medical Center campuses in the spring of 2013. Images of the sculptures and the writing that inspired them will be posted on the web. At the end of the project year, the sculptures will be given to the writers in gratitude for their participation.
