With an unusual collaboration between a printmaker and sculptor, The Talking Head exhibit at Plains Art Museum has finally made its debut. Although on display, it's also in progress. As an educational tool by resident sculptor, Peter Kelly, and on-site printmaker, Amanda Heidt, museum-goers are invited inside their three-year process. Visit the exhibit and you will likely find Kelly at the center of the room, hard at work. Despite the craft requiring intense concentration, he happily welcomes the opportunity to converse with visitors about the exhibit's process and purpose. With the exhibit open through May 11 and roughly 25 percent yet to complete, Plains Art Museum invites you to partake in a living exhibition which has transformed simple paper into elaborate 3-D personalities.
