This upcoming art talk looks intriguing, and one of Gallery MAR‘s artists, Bridgette Meinhold, will be speaking. I’m going to try to make it, and you should too.

Environmental Art: Visual Arts and Literature: “A discussion about the connections among the environment, art, and activism.”

Current Artists in Residence at Spiro Arts (writer-Nancy Lord) and (visual artist-David Sullivan) will discuss their work and ideas, relative to environmental concerns, moderated by Park City artist/eco blogger Bridgette Meinhold. Each resident will address specific concerns to their hometowns of Alaska and Louisiana, how these concerns may relate to Park City, and the role of art in wrestling with environmental issues.

Date and Time: Thursday, May 12th (6 – 7pm)

Location: Spiro Arts at Silver Star – Central Studio Building, 1825 Three Kings Drive, Park City UT 84060

Cost: Admission is free and open to the public. A $5.00 donation is recommended to help Spiro Arts sustain its mission
