UM: Environmental Art

The Great Lakes Echo has published an interview with Sara Adlerstein González, an artist and ecosystem scientist at the University of Michigan whose artwork is on display through December at UM’s School of Natural Resources & Environment. “I don’t want to believe that my art is going to change the world. But I do think that art and the artist are a part of this world and need to be a mirror of what’s going on and reflect on reality. At this point in time, I think society has big problems with environmental issues. I happen to be a scientist working on the Great Lakes and understanding … stressors in their environment and the role that humans play.” [Source]
