earth • science • art / sixteen collaborative explorations

Newly created artworks and informational displays about the scientific research on which they are based will be exhibited June 1–July 7, 2012, at the R. Blitzer Gallery in Santa Cruz, California.

Titled “earth • science • art / sixteen collaborative explorations,” the exhibit pairs artists from California’s central coast and San Francisco Bay Area with scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz. After an introductory gathering in January, the artists have been meeting with the scientists and creating new artworks inspired by the scientific research.

“This project is an opportunity to showcase the talents of our area’s artists, as well as the exciting scientific work being done in Santa Cruz by the USGS,” said Lisa Hochstein, artist and curator of the exhibit. “Through these collaborations, we hope to invite people to reflect on the vastness of geological time, the impact of humans on the planet, and the creative ways that, as scientists and artists, we study and represent the world around us.”

The exhibit will feature the artists’ new works alongside informational displays by the participating scientists. Two panel discussions during the month of June will give the public an opportunity to speak with the artists and scientists about their collaborations. The gallery is located at 410 Natural Bridges Drive, Santa Cruz.
