Known in both art and environmental circles, Suvan Geer will moderate a participatory conversation on what it takes to sustain practices in art and activism. she will open the discussion with local land activist Joe Barrett and environmental lawyer Dean Wallraff. The panel will take place in conjunction with the "Wilderness Mind: Activating Wonder" exhibition that was curated by Marie Cenkner and featured works by 16 members of the SCWCA Eco-Art Collective.

ABOUT THE PANELISTS:

"I chose the pieces that most piqued my curiosity. The resulting selections are riotous, challenging, and in a few instances, gleefully perverse. . . .Some explicitly raise questions about identity, celebrity, and community; others embed their political concerns within their embrace of kitsch. Many of the works directly recall past feminist art practices, and in doing so yield new insights about the role of decoration, adornment, and self-display within the arts and society at large.

The exhibition, which featured 26 contemporary artworks and 12 posters from the collections of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG) all focused on water as a vital yet limited resource was co-organized by Sandra Mueller with curator Susan King in collaboration with Avenue 50 Studio and CSPG. As King noted:
