“The Texture of Landscape” Environmental Studies Colloquium Series talk by Nancy Winship Milliken, Environmental Artist.

What is Celebratory Ecology? How do we memorialize a global event, such as climate change, that seemingly has no end? Where are the nature-centric monuments? Nancy shares her open studio approach that holds these questions at the center of her practice.

Nancy Winship Milliken is a site-specific environmental artist using natural and cultural histories of place to consider universal contemporary issues of sustainability and climate care. From materials such as horsehair to limestone she offers the textures of the landscape for a felt response of place.

She has installed work in New England and New Zealand farmlands, and shown in solo and select group shows, including at Shelburne Museum, Vermont; deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Massachusetts; Boston Sculptors Gallery, Massachusetts; Minute Man National Historical Park, Massachusetts; Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, Vermont; Burlington City Arts, Vermont; Christian Science Plaza in Boston. She currently has a solo exhibition highlighting nature centric memorials at Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park in Cornish, New Hampshire, up through October 29.
