ADV - Artist in Residence Program - Lunch with a Scientist- Cedar Creek
East Bethel, MN 55005
Join life-long learners for a monthly lunch and learn series at Cedar Creek! Bring your own lunch and hunger for knowledge, we will provide the brain food! Each month, scientists will present a general-audience lecture about their work at or related to Cedar Creek.
January's speakers are Cedar Creeks current artists in residence: Vera Ming Wong, Cheri Stockinger, and Areca Roe. These artists will be sharing about the intersection of art and science, as well as some of their work and experience at Cedar Creek this past year. Art and science are, in many cases, inspired by similar motivations: a desire to explore the unexplored and to uncover the hidden patterns and relationships of everyday life. Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, with its diversity of plant and animal communities and its wealth of long-term ecological research, provides a unique opportunity for artists to investigate the intersection of science, nature and humanity. We invite artists working in any genre to bring their unique ideas and perspectives to Cedar Creek to help us build a long-term, diverse body of work exploring this place and its science.
