To continue the dialogue around some of today’s most pressing environmental issues, we are pleased to host Fritz Haeg, international artist, eco-activist, and "Animal Estates" architect for season five of Basic Needs, summer speakers series, here at The Ecology Center.
How do the choices we make to satisfy our basic needs impact the health of our community and our environment? Find out all summer long in this open-forum to explore and discuss critical topics with cutting-edge thinkers including this month's internationally recognized guest, Fritz Haeg.
His inspiring work around the world includes edible gardens, public dances, educational environments, animal architecture, domestic gatherings, urban parades, temporary encampments, documentary videos, publications, exhibitions, websites, and occasionally buildings for people. Recent projects include Edible Estates – an international series of public domestic edible gardens; Animal Estates – a housing initiative for native wildlife in cities around the world which debuted at the 2008 Whitney Biennial; Sundown Schoolhouse – an itinerant educational program, which evolved out of the Sundown Salon gatherings at his geodesic home base in the hills of Los Angeles; the designs, encampments, and scores of Fritz Haeg Studio; and starting in 2012, the new traveling project series of Domestic Integrities.
Come join us in our courtyard for an evening of discussion and inspiration under the stars. Light food and beverages will be served.
