The title of 2020-2021 St. Elmo Artist-in-residence Dawn Kim's artist talk, "If it ain't the windmill, it's the cows," comes from an old farming idiom she heard from her neighbor. It refers to the constancy of roving problems that arise in maintaining property. This lecture will cover all the failures of Kim's first year living in Texas—her cows, her windmill, her work.
