Mosher, MEADLab at Waterfall Arts
Belfast — Leading environmental artist Eve Mosher of New York will speak about her work, “High Water Line,” and the power and impact of community art within the environmental movement Thursday, Oct 3, at 7 p.m. at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. The day after the public talk, Mosher will lead a daylong workshop to take a fresh look at ways to address food equity. Both events are free.
Mosher’s works use investigations of the landscape and raise issues of involvement in the environment, public/private space use, history of place, cultural and social issues and individual understanding of the urban ecosystem. Her work has been profiled in international media; and her public and community based artworks have received numerous grants. She currently is an assistant professor at Parsons the New School for Design, serves on the advisory team for Schuylkill Center Environmental Art Department and is a consultant/leader for the Professional Development Program at Creative Capital.

Mosher’s visit, funded by the Maine Community Foundation and the NLT Foundation, is part of the month-long Maine Environmental Art & Design collaborative effort of Waterfall Arts, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art and other organizations to celebrate elegant solutions to environmental issues.
Even in abundant Waldo County, many people have limited resources, especially in light of the economic downturn. Advancing food equity makes good environmental and economic sense as it promotes localized food production and distribution, reducing transportation costs and emissions. The Oct. 4 workshop invitees from different fields will come together to creatively focus in and build on current solutions and strategies to address local food equity with fresh collective thinking. They are not expected to be experts on food equity; those with diverse experience are invited to cross pollinate ideas, ask left-field questions, build bridges and perhaps infuse fresh solutions.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend. The workshop is free and lunch will be provided, but registration is required by contacting Waterfall Arts Director of Programming Martha Piscuskas at email@example.com.
