Amy M. Youngs + VermiCulture Makers Club

Amy M. Youngs creates what is categorized as biological art. Skylar Smith, assistant professor and programming director at the Kentucky School of Art, explained Youngs’ work to me this way: “It is very unique; we have never had anything like it in our gallery! Her work is operating on many levels and sensibilities — art, ecology, DYI ethos and digital interaction/social media engagement. It is quite an ambitious body of work.” The main medium for this body of work? Worms (stay with me here). There are interactive sculptures, digital works and installations that explore worms and their ecosystems (vermiculture means the management of worms). The opening reception is Thursday, March 26 from 5-8 p.m. with a talk by Youngs at 6 p.m.
