Field Trip to Trailside Park with Ecologist Cathy Koehler
February 9 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join Cathy Koehler for a guided tour of Trailside Park, and how things are coming back. Understand what has changed and to inform how we might respond as concerned individuals and artists to the transformed and evolving environment. What does it all mean and can we help facilitate repair of damage?
This guided tour is free, and open to everyone. Please stay in touch with us in case of inclement weather. We will meet at MAC at 11:50.
ECO ARTS SCULPTURE WALK:
The EcoArts Sculpture Walk reopens this summer. All work proposals should be submitted by the end of Feb and will undergo a review by panel. We highly recommend you join us for this informative tour if you are considering submitting a proposal.
Our mission as artists is to respond to the natural environment of the park and spirit of the natural preserve. A cherished community place in nature.
You are invited to propose works of a restorative nature. This may include sculptures that provide “architecture” or habitat–to replace trees that are gone, and certain replanting efforts that have minor earth disturbance. Work may also provide shade. Work can respond to earth contours, missing links in the ecosystem, things that are leftover after the fire, elemental components (wood, fire, earth water, air etc…). All work including biological materials, seeds trees, plants etc must be vetted by an ecologist (which is frankly fascinating and we have one to work with!)
Consider exploring site specific environmental art and ecological works on the internet. See image below (more info on project at http://www.moonshineink.com/arts-culture/nature-art-project. )
Whether you plan to make a proposal or are just curious to learn more, we hope you will join us!
If you or someone you know would like to join us and requires ADA accommodations, please message us in advance
