Meet the Artist: Emilio Sweet-Coll

June 13 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Emilio Sweet-Coll, an animator and musician based in Los Angeles who uses drawings and animation to interpret birdsong, is visiting Acadia National Park this week as an artist-in-residence. You have two chances this week to meet them, see their work, and contribute to their work in progress.

The first is a talk at 10am Thursday at the Sieur de Monts Nature Center. The artist will be joined by Laura Sebastianelli, a sound recordist specializing in bird vocalization. Together, they will share examples of creative and scientific visualization of bird sounds and then lead a workshop for visitors on surrounding trails. Bring a camp chair or blanket for seating.

The second event – a pop-up activity from 2 pm to 5 pm Saturday at Frazer Point on Schoodic Peninsula – offers visitors the opportunity to contribute to an animation in progress by drawing and painting a sequence of images of a Great Blue Heron.

Both events are free and family friendly for ages 8 and above.
