WATCH: Virtual Artist Talk with Stacey Steers

During our closure, stay connected with us and #HoodMuseumFromHome!


On May 27, 2020, Deputy Director Juliette Bianco hosted a virtual conversatoin with Denver-based artist Stacey Steers. Steers, whose mixed-media installation Night Hunter House entered the Hood Museum's collection in 2012, discussed her process of making handmade animated films by sourcing imagery from early silent cinema and fragments of 19th-century engravings and illustrations. Each film is made from thousands of individual paper collages and takes years to produce. In addition to exploring her process, she shared short clips from several films, including Night Hunter and Edge of Alchemy, as well as the inspiration, content, and psychology of these arresting works.
