Alexis Rockman Featured in Merwin Green Room Salon
Acclaimed painter and naturalist Alexis Rockman will be the featured guest at the Merwin Conservancy’s Green Room literary and environmental salon series on October 27, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. His presentation will be held in the McCoy Studio Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
This is a very rare Hawai‘i appearance for Rockman, who lives and works in New York City and is often found traveling the world doing research for his artistic projects. He will give a presentation of his art works via slides, accompanied by a talk about his dynamic engagement with ecological change for over two decades.
Alexis is considered one of the “eco-warriors” of the art world. He works at the confluence of art and science and depicts ecological time and nature in a way that evokes science fiction as much as it does science illustration. Through his research and study involved in his work, he has been a close, intimate observer of ecological change for over two decades.
His presentation will be followed by a courtyard reception with a book signing, book fair, and refreshments. This event is presented by FIM Group with support from Atherton Family Foundation.
