Making Waves in April
"Women and Environmental Art Forms" with Tove Conway
Date & Time:
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Sign up on Tommie Link or email the Women's Center for zoom information
Pioneering women of the environmental art movement painted, sculpted, and documented the landscape over the last century, contributing to the art form as we know it today. The power of these female artists is rooted not in their dominance over the landscape, but in their cultivation of conversations regarding our relationship with the natural world. In a pivotal time of change, these conversations are critical. This talk will exhibit the foundational voices of this art movement and foster an inclusive understanding of environmentalism.
This presentation is part of Sustainability Week! Sustainability Week 2021
