Four well-known artists and scientists will discuss the engagement of the environmental arts emerging from field stations across New York State. Kevin Duggan, lead author of the report Common Ground, shows how the worlds of art, science, and ecology are bridged at various urban and rural stations. Joining him are Lindsay Campbell of the U.S. Forest Service Northern Research Station and Bram Gunther of New York City Parks to discuss the evolution of the Arts and Humanities residency. In addition, Matt Jensen, artist in residence at one of the New York State Urban Field Stations, will share his past works and preview his upcoming project entitled The Forest Between.
