Learn what a vexillologist is at Missoula Museum art camps
American artist and vexillologist Cristina Victor will be an artist-in-residence at the MIssoula Museum of Art and Culture July 27-Aug. 7.
Victor is known for her interdisciplinary approach to storytelling, meditations on the failure and power of language, auto-ethnography, and critiques of identity by mass media outlets performance. She combines textiles, performance, sculpture, installation and public engagement in her art practice. Victor will be leading workshops on flag-making with three weekly summer camps for children and paralympians. The camps are the first collaboration between the MMAC, Missoula Parks & Recreation and the Open Air Artist-in-Residence program.
Participants will learn about the relevance of flags and will design their own for an exhibition next year timed with the summer Olympic games.
Victor was born and raised in Florida. She received her Associate of Arts degree from the New World School of the Arts, her Bachelor of Art from Sarah Lawrence College, and her Master in Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute.
