Three Artists consider how we imprint ourselves on the landscape with the weight of culture, economy, and memory. Heap of Birds lends a contemporary voice to indigenous traditions. Robson transmutes the stream of plastic waste we spin off into works of stunning beauty. Brosen’s water color “portraits” of cities possess the ghostly presence of modern ruins.
The inaugural edition of our visual arts conference tackles issues of nature, identity and place. How do we imprint ourselves on the landscape? How does nature condition who we are? Key West serves as the backdrop for a series of exhibitions, workshops, conversations and receptions, based on the premise that visual art can inspire change: individually, locally and globally.
