Environmental Artist Stacy Levy Virtually Comes to Akron!

Tide Field (2018), A tide-responsive floating installation draws attention to “nature’s clock” on the shores of Philadelphia’s Bartram’s Garden.
In the first session, "Revealing Nature: Art Translates Ecology," Stacy will look at how art can create ecological legibility and help us all understand the natural world in our backyards, parks, and urban spaces.

In the second session, “When Art Works: Collaborating with Nature + Humans," Stacy will explore how through embracing change and observing and mimicking the action of natural processes, art can begin to make real changes to the environment. She will also discuss how artists can work across disciplines to capture the power of nature; and harness these natural processes in ways that can solve site issues like stormwater runoff and water pollution.

ArtsNow is pleased to partner with the Akron Zoo, City of Akron, City of Cuyahoga Falls, Conservancy for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Great Lakes Biomimicry, Summit MetroParks, and University of Akron Biomimicry and Innovation Center for a two-part conversation series and May 5th workshop with renowned Sculptor and Environmental Artist Stacy Levy.
