SEEING THE UNDERSEEN: Using art to tell local stories about nature

SPEAKER: Elkpen

WHEN: Wednesday, December 13, 2017 TIME: 7:30 – to 9:00 p.m.

WHO: Elkpen is a Los Angeles-based artist looking for novel ways to talk about nature to a wide audience. Employing context and site specificity, her premise is that seeing things in unexpected ways helps deepen a viewer’s connection to content and hopefully builds bridges to conservation values. She creates messages about natural history stories using the shorthand of pictographs, graphic lettering arrangements, and humor in formats that range from matchbooks to street art to large scale wall drawings.

WHERE: Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook State Park 6300 Hetzler Road, Culver City, California Parking available by the visitor’s center.
