HONESDALE, PA – Fresh off the wildly successful run of “The Paper Caves,” homegrown artist Samuelle Green will be the Featured Visual Artist for the 14th annual Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival. Green’s indoor sculpture at her Basin & Main at Lot 21 drew thousands to downtown Honesdale. The undulating cave walls made of more than 1,000,000 pages from old books immersed visitors in a truly unique and awe-inspiring experience.
Sam will be making some new work especially for Roots & Rhythm this year. She studied at Tyler school of Art in Philadelphia, PA followed by Parsons school of design in New York City, where she concentrated in painting and sculpture. She continued to develop her visual art while working freelance as an artist assistant and at many museums including PS1/MOMA, the Cooper-Hewitt, and the Guggenheim, as well as traveling across the country to paint signs and murals. Simultaneously, she continued to develop her own work which has consistently been connected to the details found in the natural world and humans interaction with it.
Honesdale Roots & Rhythm is still seeking participants for Artist Row. Stay tuned as musical acts will be announced soon as we get closer to June 15th!
