Strange Attractors: Environmental Art that Restores and Informs
With intense sensitivity to beauty and pathos, artists conceive site works with unfettered imagination driven by playful passion.  Our mid-summer lecture is intended to evoke your imagination examining art that informs and art that remediates.  We'll see how public art can inspire adoption of sustainable practices.  In looking at where the funding for these efforts are found, we will ask how we can better integrate supportive social structures for keeping local artists working members of our everyday environments.

Kelli Pearson, consults with Economic Transformations Group on cluster-based sustainable regional economic development projects around the world, specializing in sustainable city planning and well-being tourism.  She is currently completing her MSc in Environmental Governance at the University of Freiburg, located in one of Europe's "Greenest Cities."  Her Thesis on the topic of "Ecological Restoration Artwork," focuses on public artwork that restores or enhances ecosystem processes.  The underlying message is that governments, scientists and people from the community  can work together with nature and ecosystems as partners in creating flourishing natural and human environments, and that beauty and human creativity play an essential role.

Mary Bayard White is the co-head of the Glass Department at the Crucible in West Oakland.  Mary, a Bay Area sculptor/arts educator, links art making and environmental issues, addressing issues of water resources, renewable energy, urban habitats for wild birds and affordable housing.  She believes in the power of regeneration, transformation and reuse, uses salvage materials in her work, and often works with many varieties of recycled glass, and found metal parts.  She is on the board of Women Environmental Artists Directory.

Join us for a beautiful presentation of wonderful projects by environmental artists and imagine a few projects that could move remediation forward.
