Nevada Museum of Art features artist Johanson

museum johansonJoin artist Patricia Johanson as she leads guests through an intimate discussion of her Petaluma Wetlands Park project, while viewing the numerous drawings and designs on display in the CA+E LAB. Balancing beautiful design with ecological sensitivity, Johanson’s work is considered one of the most dynamic and functional landscape architecture projects in recent years.

Using constructed and natural wetlands Johanson created a multi-purpose public landscape providing three miles of recreational use, educational programs and nature study alongside a facility that simultaneously processes human sewage, while also generating crops and creating wildlife habitats. Art, ecology, landscaping and functional infrastructure meet in this collaborative project.

This exhibition is presented as part of the Art + Environment series, an initiative of the Nevada Museum of Art that brings together community, artists and scholars to explore the interaction between people and their environments.

Art Bites give attendees the opportunity to experience an informal and intimate introduction to works in the galleries over a short half-hour dialogue. Cost: $5 / $4 Museum members. The Art Bite series is supported in part by the Gabelli Foundation.
