            University Programs is thrilled to bring the artwork of Laura “Lola” Baltzell and her “Team Tolstoy” to the Anne Kittrell Art Gallery. Baltzell initiated the idea of the War and Peace Project in 2009 and, completed, comprises over 750 individual collages. Each page incorporates a page of Tolstoy’s Russian text, War and Peace. Baltzell and project partner, Lynn Waskelis dubbed a small group of friends “Team Tolstoy”. Team members include Lucy Arrington, Otto Mayr, Lucy Zahner Montgomery, Emma Rhodes, and Adrienne Wetmore. Occasionally, guest artists are invited to contribute to a collage. Each collage is a collaboration between the group and represent the distinct styles of each artist. Nevertheless, there are three simple rules for the project: each collage contains at least one word of the original text, the artist may not touch up or re-do any collage, and the artist is free to decide if he or she would like to respond to the story line or not. Project partner, Waskelis, calls it a “mash-up of personal bits and random detritus washed up from the universe of print”. While some might say destroying a classic text such as War and Peace is inappropriate or disrespectful and others might say it is artistically expressive, Team Tolstoy says that this is what makes the project interesting. “It’s the struggle to make connections, find meanings, and ultimately to create something of value,” Lucy Arrington said. Don’t miss this unique combination of literature, art, and self-expression in the War and Peace Project exhibit at the Anne Kittrell Art Gallery.

This event is co-sponsored by the University Programs Anne Kittrell Art Gallery Committee. For more information on this event, contact University Programs Gallery Chair Derick McCollum at upart@uark.edu or 479-575-5255 or Chas Thompson at ct003@uark.edu.
