Since we have been discussing the use of imagery in environmental media, I thought I would let everyone know about an upcoming student workshop that the Center for Sustainability is co-sponsoring with the Spencer Museum of Art. Author and Artist Linda Weintrab, who is currently working on a series of eco-art textbooks, will lead a 2-hour workshop for KU students entitled “Strategies for a Sustainable Society”. From the description, it sounds like this goes right along with last week’s topic:

The workshop explores relationships that are personal and emotional, and contrasts them with relationships that are detached and objective. It examines the critical environmental implications of both forms of relationship. It examines the critical environmental implications of both forms of relationship.

This all goes down on Wednesday, March 26 from 2 to 4 PM. Details are available on the Center for Sustainability website, along with registration. It’s a FREE workshop but is limited to 30 students, so you do have to register online. Linda will also be giving a lecture at noon that day at The Commons – the beautiful new space in Spooner Hall.

Oh, and if you haven’t been to The Commons yet, I would certainly recommend visiting. There is a timely exhibit there now by Marguerite Perret that blends images of nature and consumer culture, including this very captivating installation.
