Artist Talk: Dianne Ballon, Lost and Found

July 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Join Maine Maritime Museum for a discussion with Dianne Ballon, the sound artist, educator, and storyteller behind our latest exhibition, Lost and Found: Sounds of the Maine Coast by Dianne Ballon. This informal talk will provide space for folks to learn about Dianne’s work and how Dianne and museum staff collaborated to create the exhibition. Sarah Timm, our director of education, will be on hand to moderate.

This event is free, but preregistration is required.

About The Author: Dianne Ballon is a sound artist from Maine. She spent years as a visual artist before sound caught her ear.  During semester breaks at Massachusetts College of Art, she volunteered in Appalachia.  Listening to the rich story-telling tradition and music from the hills and hollows opened her ears to sound.  She was awarded a Maine Artist Fellowship from the Maine Arts Commission.  Ten of her sound works have aired on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.  Currently, she teaches audio production online through Maine College of Art & Design, SALT Institute for Documentary Studies.
