Internationally-known Expedition Artist Presents: Â â€œThe Time Machine â€“ Sustainability and Culture â€ Â in Santa Monica on February 15
Presented in conjunction with the LA Chapter of the US Green Building Council
Danielle Eubank, internationally-recognized Expedition Artist, is presenting a lecture on Tuesday, February 15 at the Santa Monica Main Library at 601 Santa Monica Boulevard in Santa Monica.Â The lecture, scheduled from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, will focus on Eubankâ€™s experience sailing â€“ and painting â€“ the oceans of the world.
â€œSometimes in order to move forward in a more sustainable way, we have to look back and explore how things were done in earlier times,â€ said Eubank.Â â€œThe Time Machine in my lecture title refers to howÂ Phoenicia is a floating time machine – living archeology – that brings the past into the modern era.â€
Eubank was Expedition Artist aboardÂ Phoenicia, a recreation of a 2,500-year-old Phoenician boat that recently finished a two-year journey circumnavigating Africa. Eubankâ€™s work as an Expedition Artist has taken her to Indonesia, Seychelles, all around the African coasts and throughout the Mediterranean.
Eubank lectures widely throughout Southern California and Great Britain on the intersection of art, the environment and sustainability.Â Eubankâ€™s perspective on â€œwhat green means in the world of artâ€ brings a unique voice to the discussion of sustainability, with her most recent opinion piece running in theÂ Los Angeles Daily News on November 15, 2010 in association with America Recycles Day.
This summer, Eubank has an important solo show at Thompsonâ€™s Gallery in Londonâ€™s West End opening July 6, which will feature the very latest work from Eubankâ€™s travels aboardÂ Phoenicia.
The February 15 lecture is open to the public.Â For more information on the event, please contact Dominique Smith at (310) 902-2811 or e-mailÂ firstname.lastname@example.org by February 12.
