Art-science program development

As director of Art+Science at the UC Santa Cruz Norris Center for Natural History I create science+art outreach and programming to impact environmental policy, educate students, facilitate art and science collaborations, and for public outreach. This involves building art/science curriculum, developing innovative research driven art programming, running an art-science residency for faculty and students, as well as creating and teaching a new art-science integrated course. My work, as well as that of the students that I teach and mentor, has been used for public outreach and education, including a published book on bee population decline, a book on species loss, multiple field guides, academic publications, and a public outreach project on the impact that a US/Mexico wall would have on biodiversity. Other outcomes include multiple student art shows and sales, use of student art in science talks, and natural history themed artist workshops and events.
