Elizabeth Robbins Turk ’83

Elizabeth Robbins Turk ’83 was featured in the Los Angeles Times for her newest artwork, The Shoreline Project. Turk was commissioned by the Laguna Art Museum to create the project, described as “environmental performance art,” for the museum’s annual Art & Nature festival. The sculpture, which consists of 1,000 illuminated umbrellas featuring a seashell X-ray mandala, will come to life on November 3 on Laguna’s Main Beach. “I want it to be quiet and fragile and trumpet things that are the opposite of the ‘noise’ we’re experiencing now in the world,” says Turk, who is also a recipient of the MacArthur “genius” grant.
