Hear the Gulf with Heather Duffy

Hear the Gulf is a participatory public work which encourages visitors to add to the site-responsive installation and sound archive through word of mouth storytelling and direct contribution to the visual art. The collective result is at once durable and delicate, ephemeral yet built to endure.  

Heather Duffy is an artist from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and is the exhibitions curator at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, MI. Before joining the UICA, Heather worked as the exhibitions manager at ArtPrize, as a designer, and in academic and commercial art galleries; since 2007, she has maintained a practice of independently curating, presenting exhibitions of contemporary art in Dallas, New York, Michigan, and throughout the American southeast. Heather exhibits her own studio work regionally and nationally, and holds an MFA in painting from Kendall College of Art and Design.
