WILD TIMES by Susan Robb

In April 2014, artist Susan Robb embarked on a five-month journey from Mexico to Canada on the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail. Wild Times is a proposition to you to seek out and explore your own wildness by participating in a series of workshops, classes, lectures and self-guided activities led by a diverse cast of Wild Times specialists.

Through Wild Times, Robb offers her body and work as a conduit between visitors to the Frye Art Museum and the wilderness through which she is travelling, as a way to cultivate the wild terrain that resides in us all. Using the trail as a nomadic studio, and her experiences as inspiration and medium, Robb is creating digital works—photos, videos, and 3D files—periodically sending them to a series of West Coast art venues, including the Frye Art Museum.

The programs and online activities will enable visitors to serve as collaborators—interacting with the project, with Robb, and the broad Wild Times community.

Hack Your Wild

Participate in Wild Times through online activities designed as a lens to see the world anew. Throughout the Wild Times hike, Susan Robb will post Hack Your Wild prompts at wildtimesproject.com.

Wild Times tablets in the Museum provide access to the prompts. Gallery Guides are on hand to provide assistance for using the tablets on Thursdays from 3–6 pm.
