Environmental Art: Exploration and Collaboration – Lecture by Martin Bridge
Tuesday, July 1, Mahaney Center for the Arts 125 at 4:30 p.m.
Martin Bridge, artist-in-residence for the School of the Environment, will speak on the contributions of art to environmental awareness and engagement. He describes himself as proudly carrying his family tradition forth as he lives, creates and teaches in the hills of Western Massachusetts. His work spans a wide range of media from Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Theater Design and Site Specific Installations to Performance. He strives to create work that improves his own awareness of how he relates to the natural world and invites viewers to contemplate how to live in better balance with the world around us. Through his work he hopes to inspire and cultivate a greater sense of mystery and possibility in our experience of the world.
At this lecture, we will also unveil an original piece painted by Bridge to commemorate the inaugural session of the School.
