Coffee Hour Talk titled "Symbols and Discourses: Art, Landscapes, and Geographic Imaginings"

A coffee hour talk titled "Symbols and Discourses: Art, Landscapes, and Geographic Imaginings" will feature a panel of local artists discussing art, landscape, and geographic imaginings. This event is hosted by Department of Geography, Environment, and Society and will be held on Friday, February 15, 2013 from 3:30-5:00 in Blegen 445.

Please join us Friday, February 15 for an exciting Department of Geography, Environment and Society Coffee Hour. We are holding a panel discussion about art, landscape, and geographic imaginings titled, "Symbols and Discourses: Art, Landscape, and Geographic Imaginings." Geographers have long been interested in exploring the intersubjectivity in landscape meaning and symbolism, reading the political, social, and economic context embedded in the materiality of place, and comprehending landscape as part of a cultural-political process. We've invited a panel of local artists to talk about the role landscape plays in their imagination, interpretation, and representation of place. Join us for a lively discussion and the visual pleasures of their artwork.
Please see the attached PDF for flyer and for the list of participating artists with links to their work.
The panel will be held in Blegen 445 beginning at 3:30. Complementary refreshments and coffee will be served at 3:15.
Hope to see you on Friday!
