Art critic, author and cultural geographer William L. Fox takes audiences on a profound and delightful adventure to discover how artists’ depictions of the natural world, dating back to the 1700s and leading up to present day art displays at Burning Man, has evolved in
reaction to human-caused global changes.
Fox’s passion for landscape, human cognition and history collides with his scholar’s curiosity and power of analysis to produce one of the most engaging discussions yet on art and the environment.
Fox, director of the Center for Art and Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art, has researched and written books set in the extreme environments of the Antarctic, the Arctic, Chile, Nepal and other locations.
He is a fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and Explorers Club and he is the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities and National Science Foundation.
He has been a visiting scholar at the Getty Research Institute, Clark Art Institute, the Australian National University and National Museum of Australia.
The presentation is at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 20 at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, $10 for members and $5 for students and are available at wildandscenicfilmfestival.org.
