Lincoln Recital Hall (LH 75), 1620 SW Park Avenue, Portland, Oregon, 97201
Join us for an artist talk by Megan Hanley, winner of the 2017 Andries Deinum Prize for Visionaries and Provocateurs. The In/Habitable exhibit is a collaboration with the Center for Life in Extreme Environments (CLEE) at Portland State University that urges engagement with art, philosophy, and science.
Over the past year, Megan has conducted research with biologists in the lab and on-site at Lassen Volcanic National Park to learn about the life cycles of bacteria and viruses that survive in hot springs and bubbling mud pots.
The exhibition of drawings and ceramic sculptures offer a reflection on the conditions necessary to sustain life for different organisms while also considering the complicated relationship humans have with the environment. Exhibit on view through December 31 in the Broadway Gallery. Reception to follow artist talk.
Free and open to the public
