Carissa Mine Exhibition Opens in Leadville, CO

Carissa Mine Exhibition Opens in Leadville, CO

Sequencing Through Time and Place: The Carissa Mine opened to the public on February 8, 2019 at the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum in Leadville, CO.  The exhibit runs through September 2019. 

Sequencing Through Time and Place: The Carissa Mine presents a contemporary response to place through works that explore the physical, historical, and cultural aspects of the historic Carissa Mine utilizing photography, mixed media, video and performance. As the first contemporary response to the mine, its history, architecture, and specialness of place, a new perspective on mining culture and industry is presented that pays homage to its past and celebrates its history.

Wendy Lemen Bredehoft, Susan Moldenhauer, and Margaret Wilson – mixed media artist, photographer, and dancer – have been working together under the name Sequencing since 2009. Their work explores the fundamentals of the creative process and how artists perceive, respond to and convey place through different expressive lenses. They have worked side by side in Wyoming, London, Venice, and the Carissa Mine at the South Pass City Historical Site in Central Wyoming.

Sequencing Through Time and Place: The Carissa Mine has been funded in part by the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum, and the development of the work was sponsored by the Friends of South Pass City and the Wyoming Arts Council through the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
