HighWaterLine ACTION GUIDE available for download

This post comes to you from EcoArtSpace
8fa08275b39fbedc48673341a0921de4ecoartspace is excited to present Eve Mosher’s HighWaterLine ACTION GUIDE, the first in a series of ten art and ecology learning guides presenting replicable social practice public art projects. In 2007, Mosher spent the summer marking the ten feet above sea level line throughout Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn to make visible for residents living along the coastline what scientists had been projecting as an increase in sea level in the next century. Little did she know when she conceived of this project that in 2012 Hurricane Sandy would pound the east coast with storm surges in some places beyond what anyone thought was possible.

With this guide we are inviting educators, organizations and individuals to replicate what Mosher did in New York City anywhere in the world, to tell her story and to mark a line as appropriate for each individual locale. In the guide, other waterline marking materials and examples are provided, as well as Mosher’s step-by-step process involved in developing and performing the project. Plans are in place to create a website portal where this guide and others can be viewed online and downloaded for FREE by anyone in the world to use.

For now we invite you to download the PDF from DropBox and distribute freely, as well as create your own HighWaterLine in your communities and neighborhoods where climate change has and will be impacting your natural environment in the future.

Hello 2013 from EcoArtSpace

This post comes to you from EcoArtSpace

Amy Lipton and Patricia Watts of ecoartspace would like to wish you all a transformative 2013! Since 1999 we have worked with hundreds of artists to bring art and nature programming to both traditional and alternative venues across the globe. We have recently updated our 2011 and 2012 projects pages and are looking forward to upcoming programs this year. We will continue to interview artists for the ecoartspace video archive and have residency/exhibitions opening this winter including Shifting Baselines at the Santa Fe Art Institute in New Mexico opening January 7th, and It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I feel fine) at Ramapo College, New Jersey opening January 30th. And, this spring at the World Financial Center in conjunction with the Festival of Ideas and the New Museum Ideas City in New York City we will curate an outdoor shipping container project titled “Untapped Capital.” More information on these shows coming soon!

Included are 30 artists and 120 artworks that address water issues in a wide range of media and focus. To see a list the artists and images of the works please go HERE. Given the extreme water scenario we find ourselves dealing with here in the USA with Hurricane Sandy on the East coast and a severe drought in the Southwest, this exhibition could not be more timely.
