Art is a powerful force for building new narratives and engaging hearts and minds. How are artists doing this to raise awareness and change behaviors in connection to our plant and how we interact with it? This discussion will be hosted by Creative Pinellas and the artists behind the current Expanding Waters exhibit, Dr. Carol Mickett and Dr. Robert Stackhouse.
Artists for this panel include:
Leslie Neumann is a landscape painter, dedicated to preserving Florida’s wetlands. After relocating from New York City to Aripeka, Florida, Leslie Neumann and other members of her community, became active environmentalists, facilitating the preservation of more than 15,000 coastal acres coastal in the past 29 years. These wetlands surround Neumann’s home and studio and serve as a source of inspiration for her artwork.
Eve Mosher is an artist and cultural change entrepreneur working at the frontlines of climate change and the urban environment. She is best known for her public art installation HighWaterLine, which premiered in New York City in 2007.
