Discovering the Ecological Self is a social practice, environmental, community art project in collaboration with students and faculty at Monmouth University, local community organizations, and other artists and ecological thinkers and creators. It is an interdisciplinary project that is an intersection of art and sustainability research. This installation is in response to this year’s theme: Trees! The Dimattio Gallery will host the installation and other artworks produced through the project this year. Look for the wandering installation around campus during Scholarship Week and sign your “commit me to trees” statement.
