Seat of Learning is an art installation investigating time, movement, memory, knowledge, and how we learn from material objects. The concept originated when the artists found a vintage school desk that encapsulated 20th-century early learning through its patina, material presence, and history of use. Gathering stories from a diverse range of individuals and objects from across the western United States and the Pikes Peak region, the artists will present a selection as creative content for the final installation. Lackey and Lehn will work with UCCS students to create the installation, further layering the learning experience embodied by this installation.Bold text
