Opening Remarks from the Symposium

Last month’s symposium had a great turnout and a variety of thought-provoking presentations. Over the next few weeks, the presentations will be posted online so that they can be shared with a much wider audience. For starters, here are the opening remarks from artistic director Jennifer Monson. An excerpt is below:

“Both art and science are fundamentally creative fields where there is a strong desire to investigate the unknown. Often the only way we can develop our understanding of something is by making a creative leap that dislodges our assumptions of it. This is part of the nature of experimentation and innovation – to put things together in an unexpected alchemy.”

Stay tuned for the next post – on NYC from a native plant’s perspective.
