Organizer/AuthorMills College Art Museum, Hannah Perrine Mode
Location Details
Mills College, 5000 MacArthur Blvd in Oakland
Join Hannah Perrine Mode and Dr. Kristina Faul for a walk around Mills campus, visiting sites where Hannah harvested clay for her thesis. Along the way Professor Faul will discuss Mills' unique geologic setting in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as the formation of metamorphic and sedimentary rocks on campus, including the clays used in Hannah's work. She will also touch on human interactions with the environment on campus, focusing on the acid mine drainage problem in Leona Creek.

Hannah will share how geology has intersected with her art practice – from the Bay Area to Alaska and back again – and the role that art can play in communicating scientific research to a larger audience. The walk will end in the Ceramics courtyard, where Hannah will lead a clay-digging and refining demo. This participatory event is informal and conversational – questions and comments are welcome throughout!

*Must be comfortable navigating uneven ground, as walking trails are unpaved.
