Ecological Art: Print media installations across campus at Mount Holyoke College
Interactive & Maker Experiences
Ecological art expresses engagement with the natural world or environmental issues. Site-specific work responds directly to the location it is installed in. The Expanded Print Media class will have public outdoor installations at accessible sites across campus that respond to the history, environment and culture of Mount Holyoke College and Western Massachusetts. Projects range from explorations of local ecological concerns inspired by environmental data collected as part of the Campus Living Lab to broader explorations of the human footprint on the landscape. Exhibit will be open Nov. 8-18.
9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Mount Holyoke: Installations can be found in the Botanic Garden, on the exterior of the Art Building, near the Upper Lake Dam, and at Project Stream.
