NESTed Roots Exhibition is being installed — opens Friday at Carbondale Arts

An Incredible Science and Art Collaboration with CU Boulder

This dynamic group exhibition, curated in part by Dr. Jorge Perez-Gallego (co-director of NEST), Brian Colley (Carbondale Arts) and Lara Whitley (CORE), focuses specifically on how the arts can create conversation and spark action to bring awareness to climate change. Artists and scientists from the Roaring Fork Valley and CU Boulder’s NEST program will exhibit work ranging from photogravure etchings, found and fabricated steel, and reclaimed polystyrene to art films, plush animals and even sound recordings of rocks. Learn more about the featured artists and scientists!

Spearheaded by NEST Studio for the Arts, in collaboration with Carbondale Arts and CORE, “NESTed Roots” features work by both artists and scientists, including Trace Nichols and Mark Cesark of the Roaring Fork Valley; Dr. Christy McCain; Matt Smith; Heather Hillard; Rayna Benzeev and Nolan Carey of the Climate Chins; Erika Raberg, Jonathan Raberg, Ryan Packard and Claire McCahan of MIRRORSTATE; and Dr. Rebecca Safran, Dr. Beth Osnes, Sara Herrin, Dr. Chelsea Hackett and Juliana Forbes of the film “Side by Side”.

This project is supported by the CU Boulder Office of Outreach and Engagement and NEST Studio for the Arts, and generously sponsored by Sunsense Solar.

I am delighted to show my series – What Can I do – alongside the brilliant selected artists and scientists in this important exhibition on Climate Change!
