UCSC Professor Emeritus, Newton Harrison is the featured guest on KZSC’s Artists on Art. We discussed his work with Helen Mayer Harrison, the Harrison Studio, the Center for the Study of the Force Majeure, and the event hosted by the UCSC’s Institute of the Arts and Science, CELEBRATING HELEN AND NEWTON HARRISON – 45 YEARS OF ECOLOGICAL ART, happening, Thursday, March 9, 2017, in the Digital Arts Research Center. This event is free and open to the public.

The Harrisons have worked for almost forty years with biologists, ecologists, architects, urban planners and other artists to initiate collaborative dialogues to uncover ideas and solutions which support biodiversity and community development. Their most recent project is the Force Majeure.

Based at UCSC, The Center for the Study of the Force Majeure brings together artists and scientists to design ecosystem-adaptation projects in critical regions around the world to respond to climate change.
