NSF "Ecological Reflections" Exhibit Highlights 6 Harvard Forest Artists
Work by 39 artists and writers from 11 LTER sites, including the Harvard Forest, is the focus of a new Ecological Reflections exhibit at National Science Foundation (NSF) headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. The exhibit, “Sense of Place in Changing Places,” opened to a full house of visitors on February 28 as part of the 2013 LTER mini-symposium.
Artwork featured in the new NSF exhibit includes fiber arts, paintings, drawings, sculpture, song, photography, short films, short essay, poetry, and an installation. The works reflect the diverse ecology and culture of LTER sites across the continental US, Alaska, and French Polynesia.
Contributions from Harvard Forest artists span three years of art-science collaborations, and include:
- David Bryant's 10-minute "Harvard Forest Metascape" film of Harvard Pond
- Regan Golden's hand-cut digital c-print, "All Along the Property"
- John Hirsch's photographs, "An Ecologist's Sense of Place"
- Debby Kaspari's pastel drawing, "Chestnut Log and Sprout"
- Brooks Mathewson's photographs, "Life in a Disappearing Eastern Hemlock Forest"
- Roberto Mighty's short film, "Cloud Lightning"
The exhibit is located in NSF’s third floor exhibition area, open on weekdays during business hours, and will run through June 15, 2013. Visitors require a building access badge, which can be obtained by contacting Dorothy Harris (email@example.com) at NSF.
