Compass Points: Art, Science and the Arctic

Barbara Putnam is the 2012-2013 Coastal Studies Artist in residence.

What is the path that an individual takes that leads to a life of art influenced by science? From the Italian Alps to the Arctic, from research station in Manitoba to Bowdoin, this talk will take you on a visual tour of how science informs artistic practice and development.
