Nerd Nite 79: What Rough Beast?
"Out of the woods and into our trash: How animals thrive in the human world," by Calder Kamin
An artist and citizen scientist, Calder uses creativity to promote ecology education. She will share how her observations of urban wildlife serve as inspiration for her art in a fully illustrated presentation for Nerd Nite.
As an artist, Calder Kamin is drawn to the contradictory aspects of our relationships with animals and the environment. Her sculpture and public projects provide education about the ways humans impact biodiversity. Kamin is currently preparing new work for a solo exhibition in September 2016 at Women & Their Work.
