Ant Farm founder and emeritus professor Chip Lord to be honored at UCSC film symposium

Years before he joined the faculty at UCSC, Chip Lord was a member of the Ant Farm, a groundbreaking, experimental art and architecture collective he founded in 1968 with fellow architect Doug Michaels.  

Dedicated to finding alternatives to mainstream architectural practice, the Ant Farm combined video, performance, and sculpture - achieving widespread notoriety in the mid '70s for such projects as the Cadillac Ranch public art installation in Texas, and the spectacular performance art event Media Burn.  

Chip Lord will be honored the evening of June 3rd as part of a two day Film Symposium presented by the UC Santa Cruz Arts Division titled "Bridging the Gap."  Read more...
