James Watrous Gallery

While scientists are tracking how Wisconsin’s plant communities are affected by climate change, artists, too, are observing and recording these changes.

A free, drop-in gallery talk with poet, scholar, and beekeeper Heather Swan, and Jody Clowes, curator of Uprooted: Plants in a Changing Climate. 

Poetry, Plants, and the Anthropocene will introduce work by contemporary American poets whose representations of plants draw attention to human-caused environmental devastation and the consequences for both human and non-human lives.

Inspired by the current exhibition at the James Watrous Gallery, Uprooted: Plants in a Changing Climate, the Wisconsin Academy will host a nature journaling workshop with Helen Klebesadel at the UW Arboretum.

It’s taken me a while to realize it, but I’ve come to see that the Midwest is actually a perfect place to make a creative life.
