February 13 Land Use as Art

We have been an advocate here of expanding the definition of art, tastefully, and nutritiously. The Center for Land Use Interpretation has been doing exactly that since 1994. They started examining the human impact on Western landscapes and documenting it. They've expanded to other American locations. They also work with artists interested in working landscape. It's landscape, natural history and science for artists and the art world. And they are an example of the prime directive to make art useful to the non-artworld. Certainly they fall into the social practice field. Tonight someone from the Center for Land Use Interpretation visits Portland to speak about their work. Likely they would answer questions about their many artist residency programs if you asked.
