The University of Saint Joseph will hold EcoART: The City as a Living Laboratory (CaLL), the next event in the “Embracing Our Environment: Integrating the Natural World with the Arts” series made possible by support from the University’s National Endowment of the Humanities and Art Fund.


The event will be held in-person on March 7, 2022, from 2 to 3 PM in the  Bruyette  Second Floor Reception Room at University of Saint Joseph. This event is free and open to the public and registration is required.


For over a decade, City as Living Laboratory (CaLL) has collaborated with citizens, artists, historians, and scientists to visualize and re-image landscapes along urban waterways. The radical inclusivity of City as Living Laboratory, (CaLL) offers a framework to host an exchange of interdisciplinary information and community enthusiasm, which has inspired eco-activism as well as site-specific art installations.


This presentation will review strategies and outcomes of current CaLL projects underway in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and New York City, reflect on the willingness of Mary Miss, an internationally renowned artist, to engage local communities, as well as to share ideas ways to increase participation in the local CaLL, Park River watershed project.
