About the Harrisons:
Originators of a whole systems perspective in the eco-art movement, the collaborative team of Helen Mayer Harrison and Newton Harrison have worked for the past four decades with biologists, ecologists, architects, urban planners and other artists to initiate collaborative dialogues to uncover ideas and solutions which support biodiversity and community development. The Harrisons’ unique presentation style incorporates readings, strong visuals, and direct dialogue with the audience. In this program, the Harrisons will explore the theme of extraction as it relates to forests and streams as well as the potential impact of rising sea levels. This will be the first in a series of public discussions leading to a project in development about the future of the Sacramento / San Joaquin River Basin.
