Daryl Lucero discusses the connections between pollinators, art and ecology.
Join 516 ARTS at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge for a sunset talk by the river about the connections between pollinators, art and ecology led by DARYL LUCERO (Isleta Pueblo), an artist, farmer and activist. Topics around pollinators and the patterns of life they embody will be discussed from the perspectives of science, art, mythology, philosophy and politics. The public is invited to join the circle and participate in an open format in this outdoor exchange of ideas that honor the plight of pollinators and their profound significance for life on Earth. This event is in conjunction with the exhibition Cross-Pollination at 516 ARTS (August 19 – November 11, 2017), which showcases work at the intersection of art and science that focuses on bees and other pollinators and their role in the world’s food supply.
Speakers include: BRUCE MILNE, Kellogg Endowed Chair in Sustainable Environmental and Food Systems, Professor of Biology, and founder of the UNM Sustainability Studies Program; PORTER SWENTZELL, Professor, Indigenous Liberal Studies Department, Institute of American Indian Arts, Pueblo weaver and scholar (Santa Clara Pueblo); MANUEL MONTOYA, Associate Professor, UNM Anderson School of Management focusing on “global legibility,” the process whereby humans conceptualize the planet and make it a meaningful part of their realities; and DEBORAH JOJOLA (Isleta Pueblo), artist and curator.
