About this Event

Keep the conversation going!

Join us for workshops at SWALE house in Nolan Park on Governor’s Island: home to our Art Extension Service Project Soils Initiative (art and soils residency and project development network)

Here we experiment, encourage, and forge new conversations and collaborations-with art and science working together to probe, explore, and challenge what we know and don’t know about our world in its intrinsic relationships through soils.

Bring your ideas, question, curiosity to these workshops:

1.Soil As Art Seminar and Hands-on workshop with professor and artist, Gerd Wessolek from TU Berlin, co-editor of Field to Palette

2.Get immersed in soils in the Urban Soils Room, through the soil survey and discover soils in the pit, with Richard K Shaw, State soil scientist, USDA-NRCS NJ/NY, cofounder of USI and Margaret Boozer, Red Dirt Studio, Director of USI Art Extension Service.

3.TBC

This is a free event!

Donations are encouraged!
