Damon Farmer

On this episode of Mixed Media, we’ll visit with Louisville artist Pat Madden, whose medium of choice is ice. Working as an ice sculptor for over thirty years, Pat carves huge blocks of ice into amazing, crystal-like sculptures. We’ll find out more about this interesting medium, the special techniques that Pat uses, and his sources of inspiration.

After that, we’ll meet another sculptor who uses a rather unconventional medium. Damon Farmer, who lives and works at his Woodford County farm, has been creating one-of-a-kind figures using sand for more than 30 years. Some of his sculptures are up to nine feet tall. His work has won him recognition around the world, and we will discuss his success, as well as his methods.

Next, we travel to Covington to learn more about the unique Kentucky Heritage Sculpture Project. The project brings students from northern Kentucky high schools to work collaboratively with Behringer-Crawford Museum artist-in-residence Kurt Nicaise to conceptualize and design a one of a kind creation.

Our musical performances begin with a taste of the music of China, featuring Binian Tao playing a traditional Chinese “Guzhen.” He is accompanied the graceful dancing of Leda Wu. We’ll wrap up this episode with the eclectic pop sounds of Louisville group Valley, performing a selection from their album Your Life Asleep
